Hey everyone,
I have this dual gigabit adapter (3 of them actually) based on a realtek rtl 8111h with a price switch onboard. You can find this at SYBA Multimedia 2-Port Ethernet PCIe x1 Card - Newegg.com
In short, I'd like to get this to work on pfsense and nothing I seem to do including trying different 8111h drivers has worked.
I KNOW that Intel prov gig adapters work better but where I live in Istanbul finding server and even networking parts is just difficult.
If possible I'd also love to get this to work on ubuntu but really if I can get it recognized and working on my router that'd be lovely.
Anyone have any ideas? Any experience with these before?
Any idea if price switches are typically well supported in pfsense?

Have you considered trying OPNsense instead of pfSense? Recent version have an updated realtek driver by default and people are reporting it works quite well.
