4 out of 5 eggs NIC does not work with FreeNas 02/02/2014

This review is from: ECS KBN-I/2100 AMD E1-2100 Dual Core processor Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

Pros: Low power consumption (that's why I bought it)

Cons: RealTek 8111E NIC is not compatible with FreeNas. As I am searching for a solution, I am reading quite a bit of bad press on onboard RealTek NICs...even in these reviews people are noting they are problematic.

Other Thoughts: If you were planning on using this board for FreeNas, or other Linux based installs, be aware. I am reading a lot of people gritting their teeth not being able to use the onboard NIC.

Otherwise the board is fine...has the features I need. I just need to get an add on NIC, or re-purpose the board.
