Hi all,

Originally I'd sent this to port-i386, but maybe someone here can help me.

I've got a Gigabyte motherboard with a Realtek onboard NIC and an ifconfig shows the MAC to be all zeros.

Relevant dmesg at boot:

/netbsd: re0 at pci2 dev 0 function 0pci_mem_find: void region
/netbsd: : RealTek 8168B/8111B PCIe Gigabit Ethernet (rev. 0x02)
/netbsd: re0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 17 (irq 10)
/netbsd: re0: Unknown revision (0x3c000000)

This is probably a problem.

I however can't find reference to this 0x3c version in FreeBSD
or OpenBSD re(4), but I did find a reference in Realtek's version
of the FreeBSD driver.

But, no, I don't have a patch.

Can anything be deduced from the fact that the manual as well as the print on the chip itself says that this is an 8111C while dmesg says 8111B? Would the 8111C use the same rtl8169 driver?
