--- Comment #96 from Rich S <richie275_at_yahoo.com> ---
Loading the realtek driver from the package repo fixes the watchdog issue:

pkg install realtek-re-kmod

Add to /boot/loader.conf.local:

if_re_load="YES"
if_re_name="/boot/modules/if_re.ko"


The NICs are stable on freebsd 12.2 for me, but I can't get more than ~800Mbps
out of them.

There is a second, performance impacting issue with the driver but I will take
a stable 800Mbps which is what it can do with 1.96.04.

Tests were run using iperf3 to a local machine.
