Unable to connect to network in 2.1.4 - 2nd intel nic 2 names?



  • I am having trouble getting my networks and adaptors configured in Pfsense 2.1.4

    I have an onboard intel and a pci intel nic and these work under pfsense 1.2.3

    i cant get them working in pfsense 2.1.4

    when pfsense 2.1.4 is loading valid interfaces are: (below is shortened but has main info in)

    em0 intel pro/1000 nw crlr 7.3.0
    usbus00 (up) intel 82001i ich9 usb controller
    this usbus naming goes on up to
    usbus70 (up)
    then
    em1 mac (up) intel pro/1000legacy network connection 1.0.6

    when i auto-configure to detect networks the link is detected as em0 and em1

    the interfaces are then assigned
    WAN em0
    LAN usbus0

    I cannot then connect any devices on the lan, they just refresh as though there trying to get an ip address and fail - even if i set a manual address in the correct range they wont connect

    I know the hardware all works so this seems to be a software/driver issue

    i can get screenshots for more detailed info but think this naming discrepancy may be the reason i'm having trouble.

    Any help would be appreciated

    many thanks

    LAN set as usbus0 is never going to work. Try manually re-assigning LAN as em1.
