Re: Re: Hardware upgrade recommendation

PRO 100's have serious problems in BSD7.

I know the PRO 1000 GT's work flawlessly.

That's not true. I know there are issues in combination with some
Adaptec RAID cards but other than that they work fine.

The gig cards are faster hardware, the drivers no difference really.

Re: Re: Hardware upgrade recommendation

This is the exact issue I had with the PRO100's. I never tried
disabling TSO or applying the patch.

That was a regression in 7.2. It's not applicable to 1.2.2-release
(where it isn't applicable) or 1.2.3-RC3 (which has that fix). There
may be some edge case with some specific hardware and rare
circumstances but I've yet to see a problem myself, I'm on at least
2-3 different boxes every week with fxp cards.

I'm running 1.2-release on this box (will of course install 
1.2-2-release on the new box.  Does that mean it is affected or not?

NIC choice

Hi,

	To set replace an old pfsense box, I bought a PC with an Intel Pro/1000 
NIC onboard (em).  In my inventory, I have a 3com 905 (xl) and a Dlink 
538-tx (rl).  Which one of th 3com or Dlink should I use to make sure I 
have the best performance?  The setup is 1 wan (internet), 1 NIC for 
inside networks, with 3 vlans.  I'm using the traffic shaper and BandwidthD.

Regards,

Ugo

The only thing affected were a few 1.2.3 7.2-based snapshots a few
months back before that fix was committed to FreeBSD.

I'm extremely prejudiced against Realtek (rl) cards because of the
grief I've had with them the past, personally I would toss the rl in
the bin and use the xl, better yet I'd find another em card and use
that ;oD.
