Need to install an additional NIC…
In the near future I need to install an additional network card into my pfSense box, and I was wondering what I should expect to happen. Will it detect it automatically, and show up in the web GUI for me to configure? Will I need to attach a monitor to the pfSense box and go through the command line interface, like I did when first set it up? Will it keep my current configuration, or will it wipe everything out and make me start from scratch? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Plug the card in,
interfaces –> assign,
assign the card,
set up the IP and rules
That sounds easy enough. Thanks!

#GruensFroeschli tells you all tho…
Q1. Will it detect it automatically - YES as far as it is supported in FreeBSD6/7
Q2. show up in the web GUI for me to configure? - YES if the kernel detects your card during boot up sequense.
Q3. like I did when first set it up? - NO the card(interfaces) appears in your webGUI as far as kernel detects the card.
Q4. Will it keep my current configuration - YES definitely. It is good doing backup your config before making any chages.
Thanks for your help as well!
