Hum, that means LAN works on a SuperMicro X7DBE motherboard? That's really good news! I was hesitating buying one, because of the supposed lack of 82563EB support, but I see I'm wrong. Can anyone explain how this chip could be supported, even if not mentioned in the driver itself and in the documentation? Ivan, do you have the opportunity to open your server, and check what LAN chip there is inside?
