I should also have mentioned that the way the script is written it only works for physical port eth0.

I bought a new network card, but it still looks the same. I found out when the bootloader is running so I don´t have the backlink as if it was turned off.

When I switch the system to Windows, the card automatically connects to link.

 

Don´t know where the problem might be ??

Realtek nic is not supported by DSM6.2.1 version 3615xs.

In the forum you can read that the compatible nics are intel.

 

In the following link you will see all ethernet compatible nics:

There you have your problem... :sad:

That chipset seems to be unsupported in the newer versions of DSM.

The link jargut posted, is partially correct, (for real Synology's) but there are other nic's supported by the current bootloaders, with or without the "extra.lmza"

Most, but not all, Gigabit cards based on Intel chipsets works "out of the box" with DSM 6.2.1.

I have personally experience with the singleport:  Intel Pro 1000CT PCIe Desktop and the dualport HP NC360T (none of them found on the link jargut provided)

And you may find them for cheap on ebay :-)

Does anybody tried with synology branded 10GB network cards?

It is strange that the chipset isn´t supported when the Asrock motherboard on the J1900 has NIC with the chipset Realtek 8111 .

It Works bootloader 3615 - 3617 without drivers 'extra.lmza' .That's why I bought this chip set NIC Realtek .

 

Try to buy NIC intel maybe it will work .

I known its not an N54L but today i tried Intel 1000 CT Desktop Adapter, but after the Upgrade to 6.2.1 on my Gen10 even this NIC did not work anymore. Do you known the SKU of your card? Found an NC360T on eBay. I give her a try.

@hoidoi Thanks for the feedback, sorry to hear of your experience with that nic :sad: 

 The nic I have confirmed working in the N54L, was marketed with the SKU EXPI9301CTBLK and according to the specsheet it's using a 82574L chipset. A friend of mine, who mistakenly was updating from 6.2 to 6.2.1 bought this on my recomendation, and installed it with no problem. The NAS is using Jun's 1.03b DS3615XS bootloader. What is you using?

True, I have a running Asrock Q1900-ITX, allso with a Realtek 8111 family chipset, the RTL8111GR, that worked "out of the box" with Jun's 1.04b 918+ DSM 6.2.1 upd.xx but it seems like the minor differences with last few letters 8111xy makes the difference between failure and success when it comes to DSM 6.2.1.

Good Morning bearcat, the nic i have is also an EXPI9301CTBLK. I use 6.2 with Jun's 1.03b DS3617xs. Its not such a great loss, i got this card from a colleague. The HP NC360T should arrive next week, so i will test further, but I have a rising suspicion that there is just some kind of wierd incompatibility between the Gen10 and 6.2.1.

 

For now i am testing my whole collection of boot images (and the Intel 1000 CT) on an H110/Pentium G440.

@hoidoi Thanks for the update. 

If/when you have the time, could you test your G10 server with 3615 with/without the intel CT nic, to verify if it is the nic's or syno model that is the problem?

@bearcat

The Gen10 is at home now, so i will test it later.

But meanwhile I could verify the NIC in my H110/G4400 Testsystem. Loader 1.03b / DS3617xs and Loader 1.04b / 918+ both worked very well.

Thank you very much!

HP Gen10 & DS3615xs 1.03b & Intel 1000 CT Desktop Adapter let me update to a working DSM 6.2.1.

i had some free minutes too:

 

HP Microserver Gen10, 1.03b DS3615xs DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 4 & deactivated Broadcom internal NIC's & Intel 1000 CT Desktop Adapter:


Aleksander@NAS:~$ lspci | grep 0200
0000:02:00.0 Class 0200: Device 8086:10d3
 

Aleksander@NAS:~$ ethtool -i eth0
driver: e1000e

firmware-version: 1.8-0
bus-info: 0000:02:00.0
supports-statistics: yes
supports-test: yes
supports-eeprom-access: yes
supports-register-dump: yes
supports-priv-flags: no

Next step will be activation of the internal Broadcom NIC's because the low profile bracket for the Intel NIC is MIA. I will post the putty outcome.

@Dire In regards to my Asrock Q1900-ITX, i did the above "check" on my NAS running 1.04b / 918+ 6.2.1 with a Realtek 8111 chip.

 

admin@DS918:/$ lspci | grep 0200
0000:03:00.0 Class 0200: Device 10ec:8168 (rev 11) (according to my Google-skills, the rev.11 define this as the 8111GR, same as Asrock say on their website)

 

admin@DS918:/$ ethtool -i eth0
driver:
r8168  (this is the driver DS918+ is using for my card)
version: 8.045.08-NAPI
firmware-version:
bus-info: 0000:03:00.0
supports-statistics: yes
supports-test: no
supports-eeprom-access: no
supports-register-dump: yes
supports-priv-flags: no

Hello Eveybody,

 

i bought a HP NC360T and i recovery an access to my NAS with my data. Hourra !

 

But it's weird every application doesn't work. And i can't update my DSM in  update4. i have an error.

 

When i check my interface LAN1 and LAN2 it's empty !

 

The problème is here, Synology does'nt see my network card, did you know why ?

 

i can not connect in SSH, the connection closed in 10s.

@sebelec do you have deactivated the internal nic? My dsm 6.2.1 did not show the internal (Not working) Broadcom interfaces, but counted them in the pic devices list. So, just an idea, when your grub contains only nic1 and one MAC, dsm could use this entry for the bad nic and have just no mojo (MAC ressources) for the additional HP NC360T.
