yup. Though I must say I haven't had an issue in them in the one
similar embedded device that I have.
Knowing the issues and poor performance Realteks typically provide, I
wouldn't have bought a box with that chipset (it was donated by Hacom
for testing purposes, you can get the same box with Intel cards for an
extra $100). But the above is actually an excellent performer, it'll
do 100 Mb wire speed.
