Intel Nic



  • I have a Intel Pro/1000 MT card that i see at POST however, I guess the drivers are not installed?  any suggestions?

    BGE0 = on board NIC (working)
    em0/1 = Intel NIC  (not working)

    bge0@pci0:2:0:0:        class=0x020000 card=0x01ad1028 chip=0x167714e4 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
        class      = network
        subclass  = ethernet
    em0@pci0:4:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x10798086 chip=0x10798086 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
        class      = network
        subclass  = ethernet
    em1@pci0:4:0:1: class=0x020000 card=0x10798086 chip=0x10798086 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
        class      = network
        subclass  = ethernet

    The correct driver, em(4) is clearly attaching to the hardware as shown in your output.
    What makes you think the card is not working?

  • I am not able to assign the card

    Please define 'not able to assign'. You mean at the CLI? Or inthe webgui you click the '+' sign to add a new interface and it's not there (or no + sign at all)?

    Occasionally a NIC/driver will not initialise correctly. Check the boot log for errors:

     cat /var/log/dmesg.boot | grep em0
    

    or something similar. You may see something like:

    device_attach: em0 attach returned 6
