Help patching driver BCM57810S
I'm attempting to perform this patch (https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r32230853-) but i'm struggling to get a dev environment up. Would anyone be so kind as to perform this patch for me on 2.4.4-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)
Here you go: if_bxe.zip
Copy the extracted file to /boot/kernel/
chmod 555 /boot/kernel/if_bxe.ko echo 'if_bxe_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf.local
Seriously no feedback or anything?

your answer 06/29
my bet is he didn't even saw your post
Whoops sorry to reply. Thanks for doing this. In the end I didn’t actually use your patch as I realised this would probably defeat my purpose for using pfSense (security). You could theoretically put anything in there.
So, I learnt how to do this myself.
For those who want to do it, the original patch diff didn’t work for me so I manually edited the file on the correct lines. you need to install a freebsd dev environment, not pfsense (that took a while to figure out). Can do all of it in a VM in windows and then just delete the vm after. Use the right VM image for the hyper visor you are using.
The book/kernel part that Rico mentioned for some reason didn’t work the first time but another reboot fixed that. Can check in dmesg that it is loaded.
Thanks again Rico!
Hmm, so successfully links at 2.5Gbps? That's fun.
@stephenw10 yup but no single source can provide that, and even if I create 2 connections (e.g download from steam and Battle.net at same time) which are independently capable of around 90MB/s, I can’t push much further than 140MB/s. Load on cpu is minimal, so feel like somewhere downstream at the ISP is restricting the bandwidth.
