Dlink DFE-580TX not recognised



  • Hi guys,

    Just tried the AMD64 build of pfSense 2.0 RC1 and I have noticed that my Dlink DFE-580TX PCI 4-port 10/100 pci nic is not recognised with the multi-processor kernel. The nic was not in the list of available interfaces, and I could not see any obvious kernel output on boot.

    It was detected fine with the live CD kernel, and the uni-processor kernel.

    Could this be a missing driver?

    On a side note, I had some trouble restoring my 1.2 config after a fresh install, but that is probably something I am doing wrong, and I will just recreate it from scratch.

    Good work guys.

    The amd64 kernel should report it then. Please post the output from the pfSense shell commands after booting the amd64 kernel: # dmesg; pciconf -l -v

    Possible but unlikely.
