The only PCIe interface a Pi4B has is tied to the USB ports. No other Pis have any form of PCI interface.

why do you want that card ?
the raspberry 4 has a nice NIC
if you want more NIC then use a USB 3 to Ethernet adaptor

Even if you could connect a PCI card to your pi , which you can't,

Were are you going to get a driver for said PCI card ? any drivers will be written for x86/64bit based PC's and their motherboard PCI slots.

Idea falls flat on its face at both hardware and software levels.

you can use that pci card with raspberry pi, as an angled stand for your raspberry pi in a case :D

other than that.... just a waste of time.... better sell it off and get some of your money back....

I imagine the important part for the OP is not so much using that card but being able to "use RTnet" which only works with a limited number of NIC devices, and requires OS support for that.
