My Haiku is not detecting the network port on my new system. It is a Asus P8H77-I Motherboard and the network port is Realtek® 8111F
Should this be working with Haiku?
Right now I am having to use a USB dongle with ethernet port to get Internet on my new system.
You are using alpha4 or latest nightly?
According to this page: http://dev.haiku-os.org/wiki/HardwareInfo we should support your network card with the rtl81xx (re) driver from FreeBSD 9.2.
I am running Haiku R1Alpha4.1
Should that work?
I will try again but appears Haiku is not seeing this port in my new Potenza.
Linux and windows saw see it fine.
Anything else I should try?
If usb dongle wifi works (does it on Haiku), I could always try that.
FWIW, the RTL 8111E on my MSI 7835-001R Mainboard is working out of the box.
I am using a nightly hrev46531.
R1alpha4.1 doesn’t include a driver for this hardware. Haiku imported the relevant FreeBSD updates after that.
Haiku WiFi is restricted to PCI devices via a BSD compatibility layer.
How easy is it to install these nightlys while maintaining all the other settings I have already done so I don’t lose anything?
Maybe I need to post a new thread on step by step for the novice to install these nightlys.
Thanks for the notes.
