Intel ix driver woes
Hello. great job on 2.4 as of this writing the road-map says only 52 open. that is 15 less than yesterday!
Anywho, I seem to be having some trouble with the ix driver. upon reboot, sometimes I get link and other times not. I have to initiate the interface in the GUI. For example if i have "no carrier" status on the ix interface, I can change its speed and duplex in the interface assignments from default to manual and get it to come up. I can change it back to auto and it stays up. Upon reboot it doesn't matter which is selected, I don't get link.

Of course this is me accessing the pfsense box from a different interface. After i get the ix interface to come up, it works great until the next reboot. then I have link problems with both ix0 and ix1
supermicro x9scl-f motherboard
intel x520 network card
intel sfp+ on both interfaces
Any sugestions or things I could try? Thank you for any response.
Suggest checking firmware on the Intel X520.
This is now resolved. Looks like one of my sfp+ optics was bad. replaced and now all is well. With link on both interfaces
