Hi We've just upgraded our office switch to a gigabit Netgear one. We bought a stack of Linksys EG1032 cards because the hardware list says they are compatible with FreeBSD 6. I've got one working in my desktop (dmesg identifies it as re0: <Linksys EG1032 (RTL8169S) Gigabit Ethernet>) which is running on an MSI K7N2 Delta2. But on our Asus A8V Deluxe servers the card is not recognised (even the exact same card). Any ideas why it wouldn't work?
Can anyone recommend a gigabit card that will run in 6.0-REL (amd64)? I was about to order two D-Link DGE-530T cards but I found a page ( http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-doc/2006-March/009897.html ) saying they don't actually work due to chipset changes. Now I'm scared to buy ANY card in case the manufacturer has actually branded up a different chipset under the same name (which is a ridiculous practice IMHO).
