Cant assign to AD3INLANG Intel 8254 1PI nics



  • Hey guys, I just picked up a JBC200F96-525-B  http://www.mitxpc.com/proddetail.asp?prod=JBC200F96-525-B&cat=209 and i got intel nics to try to avoid hassle. I can assign my wan port to re0 but no other ports appear when I try to assign LAN ports and when i access through the browser I cant add interfaces.

    Any suggestions??

    The AD3RTLANG is 3x Realtek NICs, do you mean AD3INLANG?

    At the console list the PCI devices with:

    pciconf -lv
    

    Does it show the additional NICs?

    Hey Steve,

    yes it is the AD3INLANG, i made the correction to the OP

    and i dont see the NICs appearing when i execute that code, here is the output from it;

    im going to double check the card is placed in properly. Though when i plug in a cable to any of the other ports the green light on them does turn on

    Hmm, yep check it's seated properly.
    You have lot of PCI devices you're probably not using there like multiple VGA adapters and the 'multimedia' device. You might try disabling anything you don't need in the BIOS. Do the Intel NICs appear in the POST output?
    It could be one of the PCI bridge chips is not initialising correctly. Are you on the most recent BIOS? Try removing the daughter board completely, boot the box and run pciconf again, has anything changed?

    Steve



  • I have this message showing up when i go to "Interfaces -> (assign)";

    Interfaces that are configured as members of a lagg(4) interface will not be shown.

    Any idea if thats linked to this?
    Im checking bios versions now


  • Netgate Administrator

    That's a standard message just there to remind you on that page. Not related.

    Steve



  • Not showing up in the POST. Im going to give the seller an email and see if they have any advice for me.

    The daughter board is placed in properly physically. Went through the BIOS and there are no options to disable/ enable the daughter board.



  • so i booted up ubuntu on a usb key to see what would show up and this is the pci device list output. the devices are listing but i couldnt add them as network devices.

    I don't any Ethernet devices other than the on-board Realtek controller in that list.  ???

    Steve



  • ya showed up once and now not coming back up…..

    I contacted the company 2 days ago and they said they will replace the unit. Im going to go through with the exchange. They have a realtek board aswell, should i switch to the other board or stick with intel? ive use intel nics on pci 1x many times and have had no problems.


  • Netgate Administrator

    I'd go with Intel over Realtek if at all possible. In all likelihood you won't see much difference unless they are pushed hard.

    Steve



  • so im bringing this thread back to life after some down time.

    the daughter card was sent in and returned but still no luck. I ran "pciconf -lv" and still only have the one ethernet port appearing. Only thing i can think of now is that the mobo in the actual computer is still messed up. Im going to email the company again and see what they say.



  • This sort of flakiness is exactly why I don't use Jetway products any more.  When they work they're great but they don't exactly have a reputation for reliability…



  • The company asked me to try installing Windows 7 and still nothing. This also defeats the purpose of the box as I don't want it running Windows then vmware and then pfsense in that. Has any one had luck with this box or recommend a different one from the ones provided by this company; http://www.mitxpc.com .
    I was going to use this for my whole network but I'll take a box that has only two nics as I need it to vpn my torrenting.


  • Netgate Administrator

    If it's not showing up in the POST it doesn't matter what OS you boot. The daughter board simply isn't connected correctly.

    Steve



  • Tried explaining that to the sales rep but apparently that's too hard for them to comprehend that.



  • im sending my unit back and getting a cheaper unit that just has 2 intel nics attacked to the mobo.

    Hopefully ill have better luck with this model.

    I just bought exactly the same unit for my home with an intel daughtercard.  Working great.  Perhaps they should replace the main unit.  Seating the card required some care and some force.

  • i just took the card out and put it back in one more time before going through with the return, but no luke. I also asked if they would test my next unit if i send them pfsense on a usb.


  • LAYER 8 Netgate

    Is there anything in the bios about enabling or disabling that PCI "slot"?  Any of the pins get bent or anything?
