Hardware compatibility: Intel Gigabit ET Dual Port Srvr Adpt

  • Hi everyone,

    This is my first post… I hope i am following the rules!

    I am with some problems and I think you might help me.
    Last week I purchase a network adapter from intel (Intel Gigabit ET Dual Port Srvr Adpt) with chipset 897654 but FreeBSD did not recognize this new hardware. This adapter was purchased to substitute another from intel with the following chipset: 82575

    The SO versio is FreeBSD 7.0, however, i have already tried kldload of ixgb device (developped by Intel)...

    Any idea?! ???

    Thank you very much.

    Best regards,


  • If you haven't already done so you should try pfSense 1.2.3-RC3 for the most up-to-date hardware support.

  • Thank you for replying wallabybob, however i already have this firewall working…
    If i upgrade pfsense, can i import the configurations of the old one?!

    Once again, thank you.


  • What version of pfSense would you be upgrading from?

  • Hi Cry Havok,

    I will be upgrading from 1.2.2



  • Hi everybody,

    I tried this network adapter (Intel Gigabit ET Dual Port Srvr Adpt) in pfsense 1.2.3-RC3, but this attempt haven't result  :(

    Have you any other idea?

    Thank you all
