Both the WAN and LAN ports of the Netgate® appliance support auto-MDIX and are capable of utilizing either straight-through or crossover ethernet cables.

Warning

The ix(4) driver used for ports IX0-IX1 does not support ALTQ traffic shaping directly. Limiters may be used instead, or use tagged VLAN interfaces which can be used with ALTQ traffic shaping.

Optional Quad Port Expansion Cards

Default port configuration for 4-port expansion cards.

  • 4-port 1GbE Supermicro AOC-SGP-i4
