This is the hardware configuration: It is possible to load some kernel modules at boot to override the in kernel version. I didn’t experiment further but I imagine this would be resolved by reloading the interfaces or by reloading the driver during boot before the pfSense interfaces are loaded. This will override the in kernel driver with an identical driver. We also believe everyone should be able to afford it.

Has nobody else done something like this before? You would have to compile a new kernel without it. You have a few ffe as I see it: In case if one trunk fails, the other trunk will provide the backup link.

Just spotted a pretty fundamental typo! Outfit with 4 Fast Ethernet ports, the card gives you a 4-port trunk link from a server to a Fast Ethernet switch, providing load-sharing aggregated bandwidth and redundant backup links, allowing you to cost effectively run bandwidth-intensive and missioncritical dde in client-server Windows and Unix environments.

The kernel module declaration includes a numeric code giving the order in system startup in which the module should have its initialisation call e.

You couldn’t run that until after the bridge has been detected and then it’s too late. Load the ste 4 driver as a kernel module at boot.

Hmm, here’s something that looks like it might work. I think it’s a bogus BIOS setting incorrectly the noisa bit in the pci-to-pci bridge. 580fx mode guarantees that bottlenecks are eliminated at peak traffic time. It is possible to load some kernel modules at boot to override the in kernel version.

Solvusoft is recognized by Microsoft as a leading Independent Software Vendor, achieving the highest level of completence and excellence in software development. This module would be “initialised” before device drivers, would correct the bridge control register and then “exit”.

Priority Queues Support for Quality of Service With packet prioritization capability, the card allows traffic to be queued as critical and non-critical, permitting your server to run voice over IP, video-conference and multimedia applications where packets are delivered at best-effort speeds. See if you can read the correct bit with that before anything else.

It’s a nasty workaround and you’d have to come up with the right way of running it at boot but…. This wouldn’t require any changes to pfSense and would probably be fairly robust over normal FreeBSD version changes. He is a lifelong computer geek and loves everything related to computers, software, and new technology.


Support Open support case. When I tried it, with different NICs, I found that after reloading the driver all the interfaces were disabled in pfSense.

Is there anyway to run the command “pciconf -wb …” at boot time. However can that be loaded as a kernel module?

In the unlikely event where one MAC fails, the remaining controllers will continue to operate, guaranteeing uninterrupted server connection. Unusual on an Intel board though. The publicly available release notes give no indication the problem is fixed in that version but a search on the Intel web site for returned three hits including one giving information on the BIOS updates for the DNMT board but that page didn’t have an obvious reference to the It would need a careful investigation to see if the kernel modules are sufficiently favourably segmented for there to be “room” to do this before PCI device drivers initialise.
