Intel Nic I210 not working with Pfsense 2.1 and 2.1.1



  • I tested Pfsense version 2.1 and 2.1.1  with  the new Supermicro ITX Motherboard X10SBA-L-O with two Intel Nic I210-AT but it is not showing.
    I like this Motherboard with 10W of power consumption, 4 cores, and also the price ( $150) …

    Perhaps in future  with Pfsense 2.2 I can use this beautiful  motherboard or motherboards based with Atom C2750/C2550  with I350 and 4 Intel Lan´s..

    Bst.

    Yep the driver is not new enough in 2.1. It was supported in 2.1.1 but the driver had to be backed out due to stability issues with some hardware. It happened very recently though, there are still snapshots on the server that have support for the i210. Try one of those, if it works for you your'e all good.
    Anything from the 17th of Feb or earlier should be good:
