I am trying to build the illustrated config for a notebook with two gigabit card capturing off a Netoptics nt-uc3 tap.
Would a express-card gig adapter work on as a second Ethernet card on a laptop?
Is there a better setup? I have not found a notebook with dual Ethernet adapters native.

If you need to capture at Gigabit wire speed I would recommend using a high-end desktop. If you just need to capture packets on a gigabit link then the notebook configuration with express card should work of for you. Dual gigabit nics on a notebook are rare…
