Thanks for your reply. I found some info about that Broadcom NIC on this
May be you could gleam some info from that page. The reason I ask about
that NIC is because DELL use that sort of chipset on their PowerEdge 850
Rack mount servers (It's an on board NIC) and this was the box I was
going to install MonoWall on. I'm also looking a using PFSense when it
is available, and I think it is compatible with this chipset. Anyway I
trying to see if my DELL accounts manager can some how supply me with a
MB with an Intel based on board NIC.
Thanks for your help
