I have an Intel E810 100GbE nic.
I installed the Intel driver.
I attach it via a DAC to a Mikrotik 100G port. When setting each channel to 25G and autonegotiation off on the router side I can get a link.
However: In Linux I get all of the 4 channels as a different nic. So i have...

I am situated in Europe.
As my netorking...
