Tp Link network card not showing in interfaces
Hello guys so I bought this: TP-Link TG-3468. It's an gigabit network card with Realtek chipset.
I have tested it on the same hardware but with windows installed and it worked.
I mean that I have connected the router to my pc and I had a ethernet connection with the ethernet port on this card.
After that, I have installed pfSense on the same computer and when I'm prompted to select the interfaces, the only one that I see is the one from motherboard.
I have tried switching pci e slot with all 3 from the motherboard but the result is the same.
Does anyone have any ideea ?
Might not be compatible with pfsense. Windows is an operating system with TONS of device drivers, just like pfsense is an operating system built on top of FreeBSD.
That card is shown as compatible on the list, however only the v2 version. What version do you have?
the correct link for 2.4.5-p1 is
anyway if it's based on re(4) try with the following driver:
pkg add https://pkg.FreeBSD.org/FreeBSD:11:amd64/latest/All/realtek-re-kmod-v196.04_2.txz
Edit /boot/loader.conf.local using "Diagnostics" > "Edit File":
Reboot your firewall
Run dmesg using "Diagnostics" > "Command Prompt" and search for your interfaces in the output to verify the version
if it's not a v2 it will not work though
Grab the output of
pciconf -lvso we can see that card actually is.
@stephenw10 I'm also experiencing the same problem. Here's the output from my hardware
none4@pci0:2:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x816810ec chip=0x816110ec rev=0x15 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.'
class = network
subclass = ethernet
Support for that card was only added to the base re(4) driver 2 months ago so it will not be recognised in 2.4.5. It will be in 2.5 though.
