Likewise I have the dlink dfe-570TX working perfectly in my m0n0wall box and
pfsense box.

I also had a dual port compaq thunderlan card that worked perfectly too, but
got hot enough to cook eggs on.

Hi Chris,

I don't know the answer to the question about the watchguard 4 port nic, I
was wondering the same myself, we have four Watchguard fireboxes, which are
about to be replaced with m0n0walls (amazing that a "free" piece of software
is more feature-rich than firewalls that costs thousands).

I recently picked up a number of these:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=5777740903&ssPageN
ame=STRK:MEWN:IT

Tested them with my m0n0wall test box and they worked great (infact I had
three of them in one pc at one point, and it picked up all 12 ports very
happily!)

Hope this helps - as I say I don't know if the watchguard custom card will
ever work, I suspect the answer would be that it's probably not worth the
hassle if you can swap it out for a "standard" 4 port card...

Dan

Subject: [m0n0wall] m0n0wall on a WatchGuard Firebox v80?

I recently picked up a WatchGuard FireBox V80 from someone who had given up
on their expensive support. I popped the case and it appeared to be a x86
based mini-pc with a custom 4-port PCI ethernet card. It boots off CF, so I
figured I'd see what happened if I tried to boot it off a m0nowall image. 
Initial boots were spotty, with semi-random crashes with errors such as
"Fatal trap 1: privileged instruction fault while in kernel mode", "Fatal
trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode", "Fatal trap 9: general protection
fault while in kernel mode", and "Fatal double fault:". Rarely the same
error twice in a row.

First things first, slim down. I removed the 4-port PCI network card. Boot
errors went away. It appears to recognize the dual ethernet ports on the MB,
so I have a nice m0nowall based firewall now.

It would be nice to have those additional 4 ports though. Has anyone ever
encountered the "4-PORT Rapidcard_SBC" PCI ethernet controller that is
inside the WatchGuard FireBox V80? I tried dropping it into a FreeBSD
5-STABLE box with a GENERIC kernel and it failed to be detected properly. I
can post pictures if anyone is curious as to what it looks like.

If this card is completely unworkable due to being custom built for
WatchGuard, can anyone suggest a decent multi-port PCI ethernet controller
that works with m0n0wall?

-Chris
