http://askubuntu.com – We have a linux server with ubuntu 12.04 os installed. The server has 4 network interfaces on-board. I tried to connect one more 10GBps NIC (82599EB 10-Gigabit SFI/SFP+) which is pci based. I installed the drivers from intel site & the device is getting listed using lshw command, H/W path Device Class Description /0/100/3/0 network 82599EB 10-Gigabit SFI/SFP+ Network Connection /0/100/3/0.1 network 82599EB 10-Gigabit SFI/SFP+ Network Connection /0/100/1c/0 eth0 network I350 Gigabit Network Connection /0/100/ (HowTos)
