I recently built my own pfSense box to replace my Asus router at home and wanted to install IPFire to give it a try to seen which one I prefer. I’ve got everything working except the Aquantia AQC107 NIC (2 of them). I know this card has a working linux driver since I’m using the same card in a home server running linux (Ubuntu Server since 18.04, currently 20.04). I’ve never had to install the driver so I didn’t expect to have to with IPFire but it looks like its not included. I have tried compiling and installing the driver but it seems like it needs to be signed and none of the tools to do so are available on the IPfire box. At this point I’m wondering if I’m doing something wrong so I thought I’d post up here and ask what the proper method of getting this card working is.
The card in question is:
Aquantia Corp. AQC107 NBase-T/IEEE 802.3bz Ethernet Controller [AQtion] (rev 02)
Any help appreciated.
