    Hello there,
    I'm using FreeBSD 7.2.
    Code:
    uname -a
    FreeBSD pfSense.coslat.com 7.2-RELEASE-p5 FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE-p5 #0: Tue Dec 29 15:11:00 UTC 2009     root@nw-
    ds.com:/usr/obj.pfSense/usr/pfSensesrc/src/sys/pfSense.7  i386


    I'm getting
    Code:
    em1: watchdog timeout -- resetting
    error, and this interfaces not running ...

    I search google and other mail list and forums but i could not find any solution.

    I try this following steps ;

    1- Enter system of FreeBSD 7.2, and add
    Code:
    hint.apic.0.disabled="1"
    from /boot/device.hints. then restart system.

    2- Change driver : http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=17509&ProdId=3023&lang=eng

    I'm compile and install driver my virtual box FreeBSD 8.

    Code:
    bsd8# tar zxvf /root/em-6.9.21.tar.gz -C /usr/src/
    bsd8# make && make install
    install -o root -g wheel -m 555   if_em.ko /boot/kernel
    kldxref /boot/kernel


    And copy if_em.ko to my FreeBSD 7.2 in /boot/kernel directory. And run command kldxref /boot/kernel

    Restart system, but this problem continues.

    Does anyone have a definitive solution to this problem?

    Thaks for supports.

    I solved my problem.

    Download FreeBSD 7.x intel ethernet driver from, http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=17509&ProdId=3023&lang=eng

    And run this following command your FreeBSD 7.X;
    Code:
    # tar zxvf em-6.9.21.tar.gz -C /usr/src/
    # cd /usr/src/em-6.9.21/src/
    # make && make install
    # echo 'hint.apic.0.disabled="1"'  >> /boot/device.hints
    # echo 'if_em_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf
    # reboot


    Finish Watchdog massage and running this ethernet card.

    Bye.
