It's funny because I ran the dfe-570 in a firewall for some time and
when I ordered 4 more from CDW last year I received 4 of the 580's in
the mail. I fought with them for a week and returned them. The dfe-570
was clearly the much better card but Dlink stopped making them. I don't
know why you wouldn't remake the better card but I do know that they
produced that crappy 580 for almost a year. Many sites on
shopping.yahoo.com say these cards are non-refundable now (if you can
find them anymore).
As a general opinion what's the best quad nic for the money these days
that works with linux out of the box. I can't seem to find anything
cheap < $300.

Yes. Or less. It seems the DFE-580's die quickly under any load.
are not the same chipset as the DFE-570's with tulip, but a lot of
think "ahh these are like the 570's so I'll buy them". People on
Quagga/Zebra mailing lists have indicated they can't get more than
out of the 580's before their system becomes completely unreliable;
or linux. I would use Intel i1000's instead, or an older legacy card
as dfe-570, eepro100, etc.
