Intel 82599 network card support

Good day,
Could you please let me know if it possible to install drivers fo the network card Intel 82599 ?

Hi @amolchamoff

Welcome to the IPFire community.

Looking in the Kernel config file for IPFire there is the following line.


and according to the Linux Kernel website this does include 82599.

So the driver module is in the kernel and it has been loaded so should be available at boot time.

The card is not listed in the wiki hardware page.

So no one has reported using it in the past.

There is one post that refers to successfully using an Intel 82593 but that is the closest.

Is the network card not being found during installation?


hi Adolf,
Just asking before installing the card if it supported.
I will give it a try to install the card and reboot.
