    As some of you may know realtek made x3 2.5Gb chips, one for motherboards, one for USB and one for hardware like switches, routers etc.
    I just found that some 3rd parties made PCIe x1 2.5GB Ethernet cards and they cheap

    as low as 27USD https://www.ebay.com/itm/rj45-port-...t-PCI-Express-wired-network-card/192896414782

    And for 30$ https://www.ebay.com/itm/SI-PEX2405...ork-Card-RealTek-RTL8125-Chipset/382908712724

    This seller wants more for some reason: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Network-Ca...rts-Rj45-Chipset-Realtek-Rtl8125/303148162415

    Here is 50$ USB-C based one on amazon https://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-Gigabit-Ethernet-Chromebook-TUC-ET2G/dp/B07RBMTVYF

    Also club3d has two, one USB A and one USB C but they not yet available for sale, just web pages on their site

    I hope guru gets the 27$ one and tests how it works and if it keeps the connection stable, especially for data, he just published a review of Asustor NAS that has two 2.5G ports so will nice nice to see how this 27$ realtek works with it
