Help with 2 NICs netgate XG1541

  • Banned

    Hello, I have a Netgear XG1541 running pfSense. A few weeks ago I purchased an added a "Quad-port Gigabit Ethernet adapter RJ45 (from netgate store / AOC-SGP-I4)"' to increase the available ports in
    my pfSense. Everything was working fine but suddenly I saw that 2 ports of the main 4 (the ones that originally come with the XG1541) were blinking (blinking the left light if you see the ports from the front) without anything connected there. I'm able to see those 2 NICs in my interface page but anything that I connect to those ports are not getting any connectivity and NICs keep blinking the same way with something connected to them or not.

    It seems like I can't use those ports anymore. I'd like to ask for your help to see what's going on. Is there a way I can troubleshoot this behavior? Is there a way to active them again? Any clues? Thank you!!

    That does not sound like the expected behaviour.

    Which ports are showing the blinking LEDs? Did that happen as soon as you installed the expansion card or some time after?
