Messages: 5

Hi guys,

I have a pfSense box with FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p19

The problem is my system does not recognize my mini pci-e Atheros Ar5b95 Wifi card.
I've tried 4 different atheros cards (all ar5b95) and none of them gets recognized by my system.

Any ideas on how to get it working?

Please note that the wifi card was never recognized by the OS at startup:

I noticed that if I disconnect my mini pcie card from FreeBSD motherboard pciconf -lv output is the same.

The card is not being recognized by OS.

Any help, please?

The port is broken or the machine simply doesn't accept the cards. If the card doesn't show up with pciconf(8) the hardware itself simply doesn't accept it. No amount of driver loading is going to change that.

It's also possible the port is locked by the manufacturer to only accept certain branded cards.

The card is not being recognized by OS.
No, the card is not recognized by the PCIe bus, pciconf(8) talks directly to the bus and enumerates what's being detected on it. If the bus doesn't detect the card it's simply not going to work.

It looks like you have 4 igb interfaces and 8 em interfaces.
Have you tried pulling the network cards. There may be interrupt conflict.

All 8 ems and 4igbs are onboard... No way to unplug them.

Is there a way to debug if this conflict is causing this issue?

kind regards

Is it possible that an unconfigured PCIe bus can cause this?

There are 2 nones in pciconf -lv output:

none0@pci0:0:22:0: class=0x078000 card=0x8c3a8086 chip=0x8c3a8086 rev=0x04 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Intel Corporation'
device = '8 Series/C220 Series Chipset Family MEI Controller'
class = simple comms

none1@pci0:0:31:3: class=0x0c0500 card=0x8c228086 chip=0x8c228086 rev=0x05 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Intel Corporation'
device = '8 Series/C220 Series Chipset Family SMBus Controller'
class = serial bus
subclass = SMBus

Both are controllers, not sure what the MEI controller does but the SMBus controller can be "fixed" by loading smbus(4), The 'none' only indicates there's no driver loaded for it. But as can be seen by the 'device' tag it's still detected.

Are there any settings in the BIOS/UEFI regarding the mini-PCIe port?

How about some details of your hardware. 4790T is strange for a server. Not bad just not stock. I like the T chips.
Guessing this is self built?

Just off the wall I scrape ebay for good deals and bought a NOS 1U Rackmount Lanner Firewall OEM for Vyatta.
Similar to yours, It has 8 em0 and tray for additional fiber options..Was a LGA1156 board Lanner FW8760B.
I was in a pfSense tizzy at the time making WAP's on every box I got. I couldn't get it to recognize the slot either.
It used a horizontal riser arrangement and nothing worked in the pcie slot.
Turned out Vyatta offers a crypto card for the slot and it is the only card that will work in the slot. BIOS whitelisted I would guess.
Lanner don't have public downloads so that was a bummer.
So just keep that in mind if this sounds possible... BIOS Whitelist exist even in the server world.

There are lots of tunables for Intel ethernet interfaces. You could try some of them.
I am not knowledgeable about them.
They do seem relevant:

# Intel igb(4): FreeBSD puts an upper limit on the the number of received
# packets a network card can process to 100 packets per interrupt cycle. This
# limit is in place because of inefficiencies in IRQ sharing when the network
# card is using the same IRQ as another device. When the Intel network card is
# assigned a unique IRQ (dmesg) and MSI-X is enabled through the driver
# (hw.igb.enable_msix=1) then interrupt scheduling is significantly more
# efficient and the NIC can be allowed to process packets as fast as they are
# received. A value of "-1" means unlimited packet processing and sets the same
# value to dev.igb.0.rx_processing_limit and dev.igb.1.rx_processing_limit .
hw.igb.rx_process_limit="-1" # (default 100 pps, packets per second)

mini pci-e Atheros Ar5b95 Wifi card.
Is this mounted on a paddle card on a PCIe slot?
