    Supermicro X9DRW-3LN4F+ Mainboard Intel i350 NIC EEPROM dump needed

    Hi I messed up my LOM Intel i350 EEPROM on this board. Can someone with the same exact motherboard (X9DRW-3LN4F+) make a dump with "sudo ethtool -e eno1 raw on > eeprom1.bin" for me? (same for eno2-eno4). On my board it was v1.61 for the first two Interfaces and v1.52 for ethernet port 3 and...

    Single Port 25gbe NIC's with 4x PCIe Gen3?

    Hey everyone, I'm in a bit of a bind, trying to ghetto-mod some extra network capacity into a mini-ITX system and only have a 4x m.2 slot available to me. I'm considering using a m.2 to 4x PCIe slot riserand creatively mounting it somehow. Ideally I'd want 25gbe bandwidth out of this...

    Quad port NIC (Genuine -Help)

    Getting very frustrated playing detective with these cards, as I am really not an expert. I will need about 4 quad port cards, hope to have a few with SR-IOV. 1Gb cards are fine for my purposes but would buy a faster card if assured they are genuine. What is a reasonable price range for i350...

    Old machine, old NIC, modern alternatives?

    My HPE Proliant DL380 G7 works very well, I have upgraded CPU's and I have no issues with performance, also having 144GB DDR3 RAM on it. But when looking at NIC's I wonder if there are any more recent alternatives to, example, NC550SFP, which is a 10GB 2 ports SFP+ card. From 2013 as it seems...

    I just upgraded to a Chelsio T6225-CR and don't know if I should set up iSER and if VST in ESXi could enable 25GbE "interconnect" on vLAN switch?

    I've been using my onboard network ports on my server but happened to stumble upon a good deal for this converged NIC. It supports 25GbE but also 10GbE, I'm not sure if I do virtual switch tagging if my actual switch would just handle the trunking between the different vLANs and not actually...

    Two Intel NICs and neither are recognized

    I’ve bought two different intel Pro/1000 NICs, and no matter what I’ve tried I can’t get them to show up. The BIOS doesn’t see them, and Linux lspci doesn’t either. They are pic-e x4 cards. I’ve tried changing the slots, I’ve poked around in the BIOS to see if there was some setting I could...

    Hello, At this moment I use 2x HP servers, DL360p G8 and DL380 G9, both with HP 649283-B21 40G NICs... They work fine as ethernet adapters on pfSense without flashing etc... But now I need some decent PCI-e x16 100G NICs for another servers which ill use at 40G (no 100G switch) but I hope to...

    Mellanox (NVIDIA) NIC reliability & support contracts

    I generally buy Intel NICs but am looking to buy some ConnectX-5 NICs (new, not EBay) for the first time for use in a new TrueNAS box. While the Intel NICs have "limited lifetime" warranties and unlimited access to firmware/software updates, it appears the ConnectX cards only have a 1 year...

    Chelsio nic goes down after ~5 minutes

    Hi, I got two used Chelsio 110-1160-50 T520-CR nics off ebay. One of them seems to work fine. The other works as expected, but after about 5 - 10 minutes, suddenly goes down. That is to say, in Freenas it reports as “down” in the interfaces menu, and in Windows it shows “Network cable...
