Description

The driver for Broadcom NetXtreme-C/E cards is missing in pfSense 2.4.4-RELEASE (amd64), despite being present in the codebase and in FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE.

Could it be added so we don't have to add it manually ?

This module has been tested by several users and seems stable. It would be nice to have it included.

I got these nics to work by simply copying the file via scp(From a FreeBSD 11.2 ISO image - /boot/kernel/if_bnxt.ko) to a pfsense server (/boot/modules) and ran kldload ./if_bnxt.ko

Also, Put the kernel module in /boot/modules and then add the line if_bnxt_load="YES" to /boot/loader.conf.local so that it loads correctly at boot.

I do see it now with kldstat :

/root: kldstat -v | grep bnxt
3 1 0xffffffff83223000 15b38 if_bnxt.ko (./if_bnxt.ko)
659 pci/bnxt
