I have a Realtek RTL8168/8111 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC and an Atheros
5100ABGN wireless adapter on my notebook.
FreeBSD-7 STABLE cannot configure either card. devinfo shows full info
from the Realtek device and partial info from the Atheros device. In a
nutshell, I have no network connectivity on this box.
In PC-BSD-7, the Realtek works out of the box, but no luck with the
Atheros card either. The issue here is that I don't know which modules
are different from PC-BSD-7 to FreeBSD-7 STABLE.
A recent thread I read on the web mentions a problem with 8168B not
working in the stable or current releases (Jul/08 and Aug/08). Could any
kind soul give me a couple pointers on how to get these cards to work on
FreeBSD? I am using PC-BSD for now, but I'd rather use FreeBSD.
Thanks to all,
