Need lan card suggestion
good day guys.
I am using the latest version 2.3.2 of pfsense in my asus H81m-d board with 8 gig memory and intel i5 processor.
Right now I am using the onboard and tplink pci-e lan card.
I want to change my NIC to intel pcie cards but I do not know what particular intel server NIC model is the best because Intel models here are not purchase locally and I have no experience with intel NIC here.
So may I ask for your suggestion on which Intel server model NIC should I buy. Please kindly suggest me a model so I can look it up on google and try to compare them so I can decide.
Thanks in advance. I will be waiting for your suggestions guys.
I would check what is compatible with BSD. This is a good habit for a process of procuring parts. Don't leave anything to chance.
I personally went with some OEM rebrand old stuff. Every time I try to score something relatively new on the cheap it ends up being bad for me.
Any update on what model did you use?
