How to correct install a USB Network interface on PfSense 2.4.5
Hey Guys, Can anyone help me on this???
So I just pluged a USB Network interface on my Pfsense Firewall (Based on FreeBSD) and it never apear to assign it. I pluged another one very simples and cheap one and it work, not properly as I want. But the firt one I pluged is better more expensive and better brand but it doesn't apear. Is there anything else do I have to do???
Here is the of the Net Adapter I have tried to install
check if pfsense see it from terminal
usbconfig dump_device_desc | grep Realtek
if it output something take note of ugenX.Y (where X.Y is a number, example ugen1.2)
usbconfig -d X.Y set_config 1
if it works you should be able to assign it as an interface but you need to use that command after every reboot
nope, it didn't show up anything as we can see below
Can you recommend any good USB adapter that can be compatible to do this??
it's Realtek not realtek
yes, did both of option..
uhm pretty much you are screwed
but past here the output of
maybe remove that device and do a
attach it again and do a dmesg again, copy/past here the output if something new is reported from dmesg
if nothing is reported than the type-c port is not recognized by pfsense

That seems to be one of the EL'cheapo adapters
Seems to be in FreeBSD 11 Stable
vendor KONTRON 0x0fe6 Kontron AG
product KONTRON JP1082 0x9700 USB Ethernet
It seems like it gives you the info that @kiokoman mentions here
Try to do as he describes
maybe it's another usb adapter, it's not the ue300c he mentioned on the first post
Maybe it's TP-Link just using whatever chipset they fancy and marking it v2 in tiny tiny letters.
But that is in 2.4.5:
Should be supported by udav(4):
Which is included in 2.4.5:
[2.4.5-RELEASE][firstname.lastname@example.org]/root: kldstat -vv | grep udav 395 udav/miibus 394 uhub/udav
So, yeah, plug it in then check
dmesgand the system log.

This means :
I do not see "FreeBSD" in that list.
Questions related to this device and 'pfsense' can be found on amazon.
Even this : https://static.amazon.fr/ask/questions/TxX2AE7DBIDUXI/ref=ask_ql_ql_al_hza ( with a possible solution ? )
I think this line indicates it only has one config index:
bNumConfigurations = 0x0001
So not possible to set a different one as linked there.
But, I agree, this looks like it might be the cheaper device. The TP-Link NIC may well work by setting an alternate config index. @sscleber ?
