    Hi,

    I have a new IBM server with a PCI NetXtreme II BCM5709 Gigabit Ethernet adapter. FreeBSD sees the two onboard interfaces but does not see the two pic interfaces. I am fairly new to FreeBSD and don't really know where to start to try and get this NIC working. I am running FreeBSD 7.1 minimal installation.

    Thanks in advance,
    Sean :beergrin

    This is the part about your BCM5709 and as you can see the devices are none#.
    This is from man pciconf
    I think that you should either switch to different hw for the moment, adding for example 2 new supported NICs, or try backporting changes on bce needed to support your NICs, hoping that only if_bce.c needs to be edited, and rebuild it.
    The following link can be useful
    http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sys/dev/bce/

    I think I will just put a supported NIC in the server. I don't need the gigabit. I think trying to backporting changes on bce needed to support my NICs may be a tad bit over my knowledge of FreeBSD.

    Thanks a million for the help.

    OK, so i ran into a snag. I do not have any PCI-E NIC cards other than the 5790.

    Given the link you gave me, what would i need to do to update the if_bce.c file so the OS recognizes it? Do i just rename the old one and replace it with the CURRENT?

    Thanks

    First I'd try upgrading to STABLE and see what happens.
