How to enable more then 2 network devices on ds918+


Recommended Posts

I have an xpenology running with DS918+ and bootloader 1.04.

I have a network card with 4 nics. But I can only use 2.

When i check ifconfig I can see there are 4 eth(x) but only 2 get an IP

In /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts I can see with files for eth0 and eth1. I tried to manual create eth2 but after a restart of the system this file is gone.


Does anyone know how to activate eth2 and eth3?

Did you modify the grub.cfg from the startup screen or did you do that on a PC mounting the stick and used Notepad++?


Was the Nic already present when you installed Dsm from scratch? 


I also use a 4-port card from Intel in one of my 918+ and all 4 ports are usable. I used Intel‘s flash tool to hard-code the appropriate Macs on it.
