I've installed a card with two Intel 82576 ethernet ports into my PCIe expansion slot. I'm running Ubuntu server 13.04 amd64 with the 3.10 generic stable kernel.
When I run
lspci | grep Ethernet I get the response:
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-V (rev 04) 01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82576 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 01) 01:00.1 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82576 Gigabit Network Connection (rev 01)
Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-V is the onboard port, and its working just fine. The other two ports are the ones on the expension card.
When I run
lshw -class network The response tells me that the two ethernet ports in question are
DISABLED. The Configuration sub-section for the Intel 82576 ports show:
configuration: autonegotiation=on broadcast=yes driver=igb driverversion=5.0.3-k firmware=1.80, 0x61520001 latency=0 link=no multicast=yes port=twisted pair
I have a cable plugged into one of the ports on the card, and I'm able to see connectivity LEDs blinking away during BIOS post.
When I open
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rulesit shows only the on board ethernet interface and neither of the interfaces on the expansion card.
I was using this card in a previous machine that was also running Ubuntu Server 13.04 and I was able to light it up without and problems.
How do I enable my NIC?
