Pb with RTL8168 chipset

  • Hello,
    I have a Pfsense 2.0 RC1 installed with 4 network cards. All works fine but i have somme pb with the OPT2 interface.
    The chipset is an RTL8168.
    She's detected, has a  static IP and "up" in status page and the Leds behind are blinking.
    A "pass all" rule is active.
    But when i sent an ICMP packet (or ARP) no response. If i make a capture on this interface : no packet captured.
    When i sent a ping from Pfsense, packet are received by my computer, answers are sent but Pfsense re-sent the request (ARP).

    To resume : it seems that packets are emitted by this interface but no packet received. In the Interface status page the "In" packet counter stay at "0".

    If anybody can help me …

    Tried another cable?
    Have you tried this with a cable connected directly to another PC as a test?
    It shows the link as 100M but that is a gigabit NIC, is it really connected to a 10/100 switch?

  • Yes i tried with a cross cable to a PC and a patch cable to a switch which is a really 10/100 …

    thanks for your help ... i'm looking for an over Pci-e network card to verify if it's an hardware problem.

  • Hello i'm back.
    I've change my network card and the pb is not solved.

    Can you think that it could be an IRQ pb ? i've 4 network cards, 1PCIe, 2 PCI and an integrated.

    Thanks for your reply.
