In my case I imported the OpenVPN configuration which defined an interface. I had previously defined and deleted a physical interface which I had configured DHCP. The 2 aligned to the same name, OPT3. This may be an uncommon result.
@stephenw10 probably, I'm not super knowledgeable on how this stuff works in the back end. It does make sense that its a driver limitation, or maybe bug? Either way its nice that autoselect works as it should. Can't wait to get my other cards in and top out my provisioned speed. I can see when running a speed test it maxes out my 1Gbe nic in my desktop 😂
Generally speaking most things should work. If something works with FreeBSD 11.1 it will almost certainly work with 11.2 or 11.3 (or 12). The sort of regression that would prevent that is very unusual.
Brand new hardware may require FreeBSD 12 for example or even not be supported at all so it's better to use stuff that has been around for a while in most cases.
