10G Card VMWare



  • Hello,

    I added a 10G network card. But it will appear this way in pfsense:

    This would be a bug pfsense? I can not see via shell as well. in this case the plate is as 1G?

    VmxNet3

    if you mean a Virtual NIC it will always shows auto detect unless you have installed VMWARE tools on your host which are not working now.
    but the auto detect is 10GB .

    You do not need "vmware" tools to show correct speed and duplex..

    The e1000 shows speed an duplex just fine at 1gig.  The native vmx3 does not - it just shows autoselect and duplex not reported correctly either.  This is why I went back to e1000, so that lldp and cdp via ladvd package.

    I just have the open vmware tools.

    edit: I would show a screenshot but attachments not working?
