Zotac CI323 nano and LAN speed



  • Hello,
    I recently bought a Zotac CI323 as it has it is a low consumtion (6W) quand core with 2 NICs.
    All seems to be fine with pfsense 2.4 a part from the LAN spee that is indicating 100tx and all my LAN is gigabit (CAT 6 cables and Netger GS108e managed switch).
    Any idea if this is about the realtek NIC that CI323 has onboard and if there is any way to make it working properly?

    Thanks, MAX

    Both Zotac CI323 and CI327 benefit greatly form an updated version (currently 1.9) of Realtek device driver for its Ethernet interfaces.

    You might need to also address some issues with the SD card reader interface.
