If you update your kernel sources with net/cvsup or csup(1), rebuld the kernel and reboot, does it work?chodong said:Is there an update on the driver for the BCM5720?
We just got a R720 from Dell and need to get the driver update to run FreeBSD 9.0.
# pciconf -l | grep 14e4. (14e4 is Broadcom's PCI vendor ID.) The bge(4) maintainer, yongari@, does seem to follow this forum and can probably help.

Can the maintainer of this driver comment on the status of the integration of the R720 support for iDRAC?Support from FreeBSD comes from the open source community. The bge(4) driver in HEAD supports the BCM5720 but does not work correctly on the Dell R720 systems due to support for iDRAC on the Dell systems. Driver changes have been submitted for HEAD for the Dell R720 but have not been added to head or back ported to 9.0. Hopefully the changes to HEAD will be available in the next few days.

I realize this is causing problems for you. However, as far as I know, yongari@ is a volunteer (as are most FreeBSD developers) and not a Broadcom or Dell employee. I've found him to be quite responsive to problem reports. Of course, the more information that's provided, the easier it is to track down the underlying problem.chodong said:The new driver does not work.
It is only successful at ping 90% of the time and then the error "network is unreachable" occurs.
Please provide an update and an ETA for the complete driver.
