Networking: A NIC isn’t a NIC, It’s a NIC.

Reading up on network adapter teaming, I came across an interesting bit of information. A NIC isn’t a NIC at all. And the phrase NIC Card isn’t redundent after all. A NIC, what I always thought was “network interface card,” is actually “network interconnect controller.” So the phrase NIC Card now makes a lot more sense.
