Installation Pb of THINK CENTRE M55E
Why have I a big pb to install PFSENSE with "Lenovo Think centre ME" ?
but it is a new version or no !
The probleme is: Pf don't detected the card Eth (integreted in the board)
I have only card Eth. I install Pf version 1.2, and 1.2.3
A quick search didn't show up details of what NICs are in the Thinkcentre M55E.
Suggest you try installing pfSense 2.0 beta and see if it recognises the NIC. (pfSense 2.0 has more up to date device drivers than earlier versions.)
pfSense 2.0 beta can be downloaded from http://snapshots.pfsense.org/FreeBSD_RELENG_8_1/i386/pfSense_HEAD/livecd_installer/
Some users have found that pfSense 2.0 recognises Intel NICs that are not recognised by pfSense 1.2.3
pfSense 2.0 is still in development so, depending on what you want to do, you might fnd it less stable than pfSense 1.2.3.
If you haven't already done so, I suggest you check the NIC is not disabled in the BIOS.
I check the name of card eth ==> Macronix(MXIC)MX98715 family fast Ethernet Adapter (ACPI)
So i want to install 2.0 !!!!
Interesting: The Macronix 98715 is listed as supported by the dc driver in FreeBSD 7.2 (see http://www.freebsd.org/releases/7.2R/hardware.html) so should be supported by pfSense 1.2.3. But it may be you have a newer variant not recognised by the older device driver.
but I don't know ! where i can get this driver, and help me to install that
With PF V.2.0 ==> installation is OK:
The name of the eth card is "Marvell Technology Group Ltd Yukon Ultra 2 Id 0xba Rev 0x00"
but Captiveportal isn't working.
