We use a 945 chipset Intel board in our production machines: D945GTP and it works great with our
Intel nics.  It is finicky about what it will boot to, though.  We use Transcend flash IDE modules. 
Best of luck with anything else.

I downgraded to an Intel 865 based motherboard, everything now works fine, both with Intel 100 Mbit
and Gigabit nics.

This is a big problem for me, as we are not able to get old boards and CPU's in large quantities, is
the version of FreeBSD that m0n0wall is based on still somehow under development regarding to new
hardware support ?

Emne: [m0n0wall] Intel NICS not working.

Hello everyone!
 
I use the PC images in standard rack mount PC's
 
This time i used Intel Gigabit adapters (PWLA8391GT), but i noticed dropouts more specific it looked
like the adapters resets itself, because my switch lost link for a sec or two, and then the
connection was good again.
 
I changed NICS, cables and so on, but the problem was still there, all i got in the console was link
down and then link up again in 2-10 seconds.
 
I changed to 100 Mbit intel nics (PILA8460C3), same behavior but a lot more in the logs.

Motherboard is Intel Sorrento D945GNT and i'm running for a harddisk.
 
I'm blank, what is wrong, have anyone seen this before ?
