Got the SFP+ version of the adapter (QNA-T310G1S). This was a pre-loved (used) unit that really looked like new. I’m working from a Windows 11 machine connected to a Netgear MS510TX switch via 10GbE SFP+ twinaxial direct attach cable.
After I plugging the adapter, windows 11 recognized it right away and installed its driver. The next step was to download and upgrade the device to its latest Marvell firmware. The upgraded completed very quickly. Now it's running 3.1.121 firmware. After a final reboot, I was back on business. Note that the Windows PC already Thunderbolt enables, had latest thunderbolt firmware and drivers.
I have several VirtualBox Virtual Machines hosted in a Synologic NAS. So I wanted to increase the connection speed to the NAS. To test my setup, I started a VM running Lubuntu 22.04 LTS and started a job to build Linux Kernel 6.1.4 with some custom teaks. The process started and ended quicker than before. The network connection was stable and fast. I’m happy with the purchase.
