Lan 1 running at 10Mbps

Recommended Posts

I have DSM running on on a Dell T30 and noticed lan 1 is showing 10Mbps, Full duplex, 1500 mtu.

The onboard card is an Intel I219-LM. A forum search turns up a thread that appears this card is not going to be supported for reasons that are beyond my technical understanding. 

If I can't get this working at 1000Mps, can I just shutdown the server,  pop in a new card, and restart with 2 devices now running?  Do I need to disable the onboard nic in the BIOS first, or at all ? Can I disable the onboard nic in the DSM interface? The server is headless and I'd prefer not to have to hook up a monitor and keyboard to access the BIOS

While I'm here is there a suggested replacement card. The server is used in a home network

you dont write anyhing about the loader, dsm version or extra driver package used

in general this type of behavior point to cable and switch, not the driver

Thanks for the reply, 

After further investigation using iperf I am getting a 1 Gbps connection to the server. I'm not sure why DSM is reporting something different. 

 

I'm using boot loader 1.04b, DSM 6.2.2, and no extra driver packages that i recall.

NIC speed low, you should check your Ethernet cable first. 

Also you could make a Centos7 liveUSB linux boot disk, see if the NIC work normally in the liveUSB OS mode.

 

I have T30 server with Esxi 6.7 , onboard NIC was working fine.

But this chassis have many slot, you could buy other Intel 340T2 or 350T2 NIC card insert PCIE slot.
