    In general D525 ICH9 based motherboards work fine as do Intel 82574L NICs. I don't know if anyone has used that specific motherboard though.
    You should be using 2.0.2 though. 1.2.3 is now very old.


  • @stephenw10:

    1.2.3 is now very old.

    Possibly too old to support 82574L NICs. You should search the forums for "82574L". You MIGHT need a snapshot build of pfSense 2.1 to get support for those NICs.

    Regarding to the Intel 82574L NICs, i'm using a Supermicro H8SCM Motherboard, which have 2 of them, and they are working OK with 2.0.1 / 2.0.2

  • Can i easily update from 1.2.3 to 2.x ?

  • Netgate Administrator

    Yes but as Wallabybob pointed out your NICs may not work under 1.2.3 which would make it a lot more difficult (if not impossible). Why not just install 2.0.2? You can import a 1.2.3 config file if you have hundreds of firewall rules you need to use.
