Hello, I have recently installed a RealTek 8029 NIC into my FreeBSD machine but am unable to get it to work. The kernel finds and loads it at boot time, and ifconfig displays it. But I get no response when I ping it. What I did notice though, when checking my syslog it displays the NIC and IRQ setting, but doesnt display the Ethernet MAC address.
Could this mean the card is faulty, or have I done something wrong? * PS The card is second hand and I dont know if it does work or not. Also I have not tested it elsewhere.
