Adding Realtek driver RTL8125
I am having issues adding the Realtek driver for the 2.5Gbit Ethernet ports of my OdroidH2+. Unfortunately, the ports are not installed automatically.
I have tried to add the FreeBSD drivers from Realtek but installation fails with "pkg: /aaa/bbb.tgz is not a valid package: no manifest found".
Searching https://www.freebsd.org for an updated driver package didn't succeed either.
I found some older trials and tweaks which might work but I am new to FreeBSD and pfsense and don't trust my Kernel manipulation (yet).
Repositories and catalogues are all up-to-date
Driver-package needed: RTL8125(B)
I thank you in advance for your help!
Have you checked https://forum.netgate.com/topic/135850/official-realtek-driver-binary-1-95-for-2-4-4-release ?
Why didn't I find this thread? :/
Thank you Rico. I will try it and let you know.
This is probably more relevant :
In general using Realtek network interfaces for anything server/infrastructure oriented is just a bad idea. They simply aren't particularly reliable, and usually perform poorly.
