What vendor ID and product ID, exactly? ("pciconf -lv" will tell.) I'm asking because the re(4) driver seem to contain support for several different chips that are all identified as "8111C", but work slightly differently. So it is important to know whether your version of that NIC is already covered, or whether it has a product ID that the driver doesn't know about yet. As far as I can tell from the repository history, the driver is well maintained. Best regards Oliver -- Oliver Fromme, secnetix GmbH & Co. KG, Marktplatz 29, 85567 Grafing b. M.
