Driver bug for AX88179 on pfSense 2.2



  • I bought a couple Trendnet USB3 Adapter (AX88179) to use in two news installation with Intel NUC (NUC5i3RYK), since I needed two Gbit interfaces in each gateway. FreeBSD 10.1 supports this chipset, so does pfSense 2.2.

    However I'm having a issue that I consider a bug.
    The interface using the AX88179 resets every other hour in a softer way but I still lose network access for a few seconds.
    Talking about that on FreeBSD forum, some people say that FreeBSD 10.1-STABLE fix the problem.
    I'm having a hard time to figure out what FreeBSD version the pfSense 2.2 uses. What 10.1-RELEASE-p4 means in terms of FreeBSD version. There's no explanation about that on BSD's Website or pfSense's.

    Yesterday I downloaded the 2.2.1 devel version to test (uses 10.1-RELEASE-p6) and the problem is the same.

    Somebody has any idea if in any point the 10.1-STABLE will be used. It appears to me that they never use the stable versions on pfSense. It's always somethings customized. am I right?  Any ideas how to get this bug to the pfSense Developers?
