• I installed a new HDD into an existing Windows PC to turn it into a PFSense box. In Windows both NIC are visisble but in FSense only the LAN NIC is. How do I check the state of the NICs after PFSense has booted?

  • Hi,

    Access console, use option 8.


    and look for all hardware the kernel found, typically NIC's.

    pfSense uses the NIC's the OS (FreeBSD) has found.
