[help] realtek 8111e won't detect



  • i have a board with onboard realtek 8111e, it won't detect.

    i've tried below with the current snapshot

    http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,32983.0.html

    still doesn't detect.

    will pfsense include this driver in their kernel, gigabyte boards are very common…



  • now i just found that dmesg | grep re0

    shows

    re0: <realtek 8111="" 8186="" b="" c="" etc…="" ...<br="">not sure if that helps...

    kldstat shows if_re.ko is loaded
    ifconfig | grep re doesn't show any re0 interface......

    im using gigabyte GA-880GMA-USB3 board with 2x intel gigabit nic which detect fine.

    nothing in webgui -> interfaces -> assign
    just em0 and em1 which are my intel nics.</realtek>



  • Please post the complete output of # dmesg | grep re

    The re driver probably had a complaint about the device it attempting to take control of. The rest of the output should give some clue about the complaint.

    That is your problem: the re driver says it doesn't recognise the hardware revision in the chip and refuses to attach to the device, hence ifconfig won't report interface re0.



  • so what do i do? shrug
