No SBC compatible network device  Empty No SBC compatible network device

I am finishing up a bare metal installation of freeSBC and I am stuck on the network device configuration. The bare metal server is a Dell Power Edge R201 II with 2 GBE interfaces. One interface (the one that is running the SBC configuration wizard) is pre-selected as mtmg and the other one does not have an option for LAN/WAN. clicking on the "+" next to the interface shows

Name:
Maximum speed (Mbps): 1000
IP interfaces using this device: 10.0.1.29
Pci Id: 0000:01:00.0
Permanent Mac Address: d4🇦🇪52:c7:61:09
Vendor id: 14e4
Vendor Name: Broadcom Limited
SBC-compatible (LAN/WAN): false
Device name: NetXtreme II BCM5716 Gigabit Ethernet
Device id: 163b
Driver:
Numa id: -1

Does anyone have any idea why this interface can't support LAN/WAN functionality?

Nevermind.  I found the list of supported NIC's here:

docs . telcobridges . com/tbwiki/Supported_NICs

(sorry forum will not allow me to post the actual link)

And the BCM5716 is NOT on it. It's a shame too since my use case probably will not require more than 15 or 20 simultaneous sessions.

Hi

You are right your NIC is not in supported NIC list. Our application, Tbrouter, requires DPDK (libraries/drivers in CentOS). Your NIC is not support DPDK, this why it is not in the list.

I am having a very difficult time trying to find a NIC to add to my Dell server (PCIe X 16 G2) with the specific chipset.  For example I found a NIC with the 82540 chipset but not the 82540*EM* chipset.  Can anyone recommend a compatible NIC I can use with a copper wire based network?

You can use 1Gbps network interfaces like the ones we use in our Dell Servers (TSBC-HW-SRV-MID) :
https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAFVZ7252995&cm_re=Intel_Ethernet_Server_Adapter_I350-T4-_-33-106-247-_-Product
https://www.pcnation.com/web/details/2DB674/Dell-Intel-Ethernet-i350-Qp-1Gb-Server-Adapter-540-BBDV-00884116171027

I also used the I340-T4 in one of my systems and this works as well.

I have searched for the 82540 Gigabit Ethernet Controller and seems they come in two modes: EM and EP. The only difference I found between the two is the EP one can run below 0 degrees Celsius and is probably more expensive. When they do not specify EM or EP, it should be the EM one.

Thanks! I found a very reasonably priced I340-T2 on Amazon!
