I just started to learn about NAS4Free and now I gave it a try. I used an old computer and was amazed how easy the set-up was. As I plan to only use the NAS for backup purposes I want to use WOL and a script which monitors the traffic and automatically shuts the pc down.
So far I got it to work using the NAS4Free-x86-LiveUSB-188.8.131.52.847 software and a script from http://n4f.siftusystems.com/index.php/2 ... ff-script/
The PC's mainboard is an Asus A7N8X-E (http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/soc ... deluxe.pdf
). It has two LAN-connectors but only one that supports Gigabit LAN. The one supporting only 100 Mbit can be used for WOL purposes just fine, but the Marvell 88E8001 Gigabit LAN seems to have some problems. Using Windows XP I was able to use WOL on both LAN devices but with NAS4Free I don't see the WOL option in the Control Panel for the Marvell LAN device. I guess that the driver is having some troubles because after installing the live version of NAS4Free I am even unable to use the Marvell device at all.
As I need to transfer several Gigabyte of Data the extra speed would be appreciated.
So I want to know if there is a way to get the Marvell device working by maybe manually adding a driver. Sadly I am quite unexperienced with FreeBSD and so I don't have a clou. On the marvel website I found drivers vor my device for FreeBSD though.
If it isn't possible to get the device to work maybe someone could suggest me a gigabit pci card which is supported by NAS4Free.
Thanks in advance for any help!
