IBM x226's NIC onboard non-working on 2.1.3-i386

  • Hi there,

    I have an IBM x226 with 03 NICs (1 onboard - Integrated Broadcom 5721 10/100/1000 Ethernet controller) is working fine on 2.0.2, however, it got a trouble that the NIC onboard was not recognized since upgrading/new installation to 2.1.3.

    Is there issue relate to the hardware? Any ideas.

    Hmm. Well 2.0.X was built on FreeBSD 8.1 where as 2.1.X is built on 8.3. I assume your NIC was using the bge(4) driver? I don't see any regression between them both 8.1 and 8.3 list that chip as supported.

    What do you see from pciconf -lv at the command line?


  • Hi Steve,

    I did a reload BIOS to default and the issue was solved,  ;D
