RTL8153 Support Needed
I would be interested in the Realtek 8153 URE driver to be compiled under the PFSense kernel, since I do not have access I cannot compile it myself. The below forum posts has a link to the man page for the URE driver, I did confirm in FreeBSD 11 and 12 that when I made the configuration changes and recompiled the kernel that the Realtek 8153 was performing at full gigabit on usb.
Please reference the forum post here:

- Target version set to Future
Encouraging the use of USB Ethernet devices is probably not a great idea, though it may be possible to add the driver into a future version.

my usb adapter it does not show the speed of the link, it tells me in netgate that it is because of the driver it uses. can you help me add a driver that supports it.
this reason it does not show the link speed
the ure(4) driver is not currently included in pfSense so your adapter is instead using the cdce(4) driver.
You should add comments to the feature request of you want that driver to be included in a future version.
