if_alc_load = "NO" # Atheros Ethernet AR8131/AR8132
required to activate the line. Required for onboard ethernet. How can I do?
It shouldn't be necessary because the drivers for all supported NICs should be built into the kernel.
Why do you think its necessary?
This is because on the motherboard onboard ethernet driver. What should I do?
my mainboard ethernet: Atheros AR8131/AR8132 Ethernet.
Why do you think the driver isn't already built into pfSense? And what version of pfSense are you wanting to use?
onboard ethernet not running, because the driver is required.
pfSense version: 2.0.1
A search of the forums for alc0 found a couple of topics which suggest the alc driver is built in the kernel. See, for example, http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,30729.0.html which demonstrates the alc driver was built into a 2.0 snapshot kernel.
Please provide the output of the pfSense command```
