You may have to build a kernel with the
"device bge" # gig cards
"device bfe" # 10- 100 cards
entries to build the moduals, I would have thought they
were with the base system. But I had to build a kernel
for the bfe modual to work.
Side note: The bfe entry is not in the GENERIC kernel
on 4.10 but will build and work. The bge modual would not
find my broadcom 4401.
