Are you *sure* that you actually have that particular motherboard? As you can see if you look through their product listings ( http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon1333/#e7501 ) Supermicro has several other similar models, some of which are equipped with one Gigabit NIC and one 100Mbit NIC much like you seem to have.. > > > > Now according to where I got the server and that page it is supposed to > have dual gigabit nics on board. > > > > Dmesg shows the following > > > > em0: <Intel PRO/1000 Network Connection 6.9.6> port 0x3000-0x301f mem > 0xfc220000-0xfc23ffff,0xfc200000-0xfc21ffff irq 31 at device 4.0 on pci3 > > em0: [FILTER] > > em0: Ethernet address: 00:30:48:24:84:f2 > > > > fxp0: <Intel 82550 Pro/100 Ethernet> port 0x4400-0x443f mem > 0xfc321000-0xfc321fff,0xfc300000-0xfc31ffff irq 17 at device 2.0 on pci4 > > miibus0: <MII bus> on fxp0 > > inphy0: <i82555 10/100 media interface> PHY 1 on miibus0 > > inphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto > > fxp0: Ethernet address: 00:30:48:24:84:f3 > > fxp0: [ITHREAD] > > > Now for reasons I can not fathom, one nic is showing just fine and the > other is using a different driver and only speeds of upto 100mbs. The obvious reason is that there is two different ethernet controllers on that board - one Gigabit and one 100Mbit. It is worth noting that according to the above, they are found on different PCI-buses, while the dual-gigabit controller you thought you had is a single chip where obviously both ports would be connected to the same bus. > > > > I have tried both 7.1 and 7.2 So is the information on the board wrong > or is there something I am missing. Most likely you have a different motherboard than you think you have. The *complete* dmesg output as well as the output of 'pciconf -lv' might be useful in determining what you actually have. (Opening the box and checking for any useful labels on the motherboard can also of course be useful, but is not something we can help you doing.) -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson ertr1...@student.uu.se _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
