Hum, that means LAN works on a SuperMicro X7DBE motherboard? That's
really good news! I was hesitating buying one, because of the supposed
lack of 82563EB support, but I see I'm wrong. Can anyone explain how
this chip could be supported, even if not mentioned in the driver itself
and in the documentation?

Ivan, do you have the opportunity to open your server, and check what
LAN chip there is inside?

Thanks, bye
