Will all do respect, that crap!
Lots of LAN intensive applications are looking at this. This is state of
the art and the absolute next step in networking. Why should someone have
to pay for custom engineering? If if they do, does everyone else get to use
that driver for free? If so, that’s not fair to whoever paid for the custom
engineering. If not, how many people do you want to pay for the exact same
There is an adage that says that the cost of a project will rise to meet the
amount of funds available. I would have thought that 100 Mbps would be hard
to consume. (Didn’t Bill Gates once say “No one will EVER NEED more than
640 KB of RAM!”) But once that kind of bandwidth exists, it gets consumed.
Now people want 1 Gbps. How often do we have to hear that QNX doesn’t
support that? It makes it real hard to love QNX, which I do. A better
answer would have been, “We’re looking into that now.” And then, actually
start working on it.
I have worked on many projects where devcelopment was driven by marketing
folks (the kiss off death). Often times someone’s decision to buy one
product over another isn’t based on which one is best, because they don’t
actually know. But thay have to make a decision based on how many
checkmarks there are on the page, regardless of weather or no they represent
P.S. I decided to cross post this from ‘newuser’ to ‘advocacy’. This thread
should continue there.

There are no gigabit network drivers right now but if you’re interested,
you can contact your sales representative for information on custom

I am a newcomer in QNX world. I am participating in the construction of
robotics setup. We intent to use QNX but we also wanted to use a Gigabit
network with various computers using QNX. I have checked the supported
hardware for QNX and there aren’t gigabit network cards supported. Does
anyone know any gigabit network card that has the drivers for QNX???
Thank you in advance.
