Hi all


Ok lets not go to war over this I just need some advice.


I have a 1u rack system that has one of these motherboards


Now according to where I got the server and that page it is supposed to
have dual gigabit nics on board.


Dmesg shows the following


em0: <Intel PRO/1000 Network Connection 6.9.6> port 0x3000-0x301f mem
0xfc220000-0xfc23ffff,0xfc200000-0xfc21ffff irq 31 at device 4.0 on pci3

em0: [FILTER]

em0: Ethernet address: 00:30:48:24:84:f2


fxp0: <Intel 82550 Pro/100 Ethernet> port 0x4400-0x443f mem
0xfc321000-0xfc321fff,0xfc300000-0xfc31ffff irq 17 at device 2.0 on pci4

miibus0: <MII bus> on fxp0

inphy0: <i82555 10/100 media interface> PHY 1 on miibus0

inphy0:  10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto

fxp0: Ethernet address: 00:30:48:24:84:f3

fxp0: [ITHREAD]



Now for reasons I can not fathom, one nic is showing just fine and the
other is using a different driver and only speeds of upto 100mbs.


I have tried both 7.1 and 7.2 So is the information on the board wrong
or is there something I am missing.
