    The PA6T has a GbE controller, which is precisely what‘s supported by Linux with no problem and by OS4 with a non-public beta driver. That‘s why normal OS4 users have to use a supported NIC in a PCI(e) slot.

    Nemo has only one on-board NIC, and that‘s the GbE one built into the PA6T.


    I wasn't aware of that feature of the PA6T, but they could have incorporated a separate NIC.
    Still, the network card seems like an entirely adequate solution.
