Does not recognize the NIC during installation pfsense 2.0.1



  • 1. Download the pfsense Live iso Ver.2.0.1, installed in my PC.
    2. Then Boot from CF, "No interfaces found!" Is displayed, do not recognize the NIC.

    My PC
    MB: JetWay NC9KDL-2700
    NIC: Realtek RTL8111EVL x2

    Looking around the forum for FreeNAS and pfsense, but made ​​the iso and install additional if_re.ko and if_rl.ko, same result.

    if_r*_load="YES" in /boot/defaults/loader.conf is not recognized by appending.

    echo if_rl_load="YES" >> /boot/loader.conf
    This is also the same result.

    At RTL8111EVL, how to operate the pfsense available?

    trouble and can not even start WebConfig of pfsense.

    Do you want to set up VLANs now [y | n]? N
    Enter the WAN interface name or 'a' for auto-detection: a
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach () in /etc/inc/config.console.inc
    on line 447
    No link-up detected.

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach () in /etc/inc/config.console.inc

    No link-up detected.

    Repeat…

    Pfsense installation is now complete.
    located in the /boot/kernels also if_re.ko and if_rl.ko.
    if_re.ko and if_rl.ko has been downloaded from :
    http://files.pfsense.org/jimp/ko-8.1/i386.
    However, NIC is not available.
    Please enjoy our step ahead.



  • i have the same problem i cant see my nics did find a fix?

    The rtl8111evl is almost certainly not supported by pfSense 2.0.X. That chipset is newer than the FreeBSD 8.1 codebase on which pfSense is built.
    You'll have to wait until 2.1 is released and driver support becomes available in FreeBSD 9.  :(

  • FreeBSD9…

    Ok.
    I want to wait for the release of Pfsense2.1.

    Thank you. ;)

    Same motherboard, same problem.
    When is the next release of pfsense is been planed?



  • Just to let you know, my RTL8111E (with VLAN) is supported since 8.2. If you'd like to try it out for yourselves please download FreeBSD 8.3 and check ifconfig.


  • Netgate Administrator

    Or try one of the test builds of pfSense 2.1 (now based on FreeBSD 8.3). See:

    I can confirm that release 2.1 is able to detect my Network interfaces of:

    • Jetway NC9KDL-2700
    • RTL8111EVL


  • Same board and same problem here :(
    As advised the nics are recognized with the development snapshots of 2.1
    The question is are they stable enough for production?
