RTL8125B cannot add network interface in OMV4

  • Hi,

    I added a PCIe 2.5Gb network card with RTL8125b chipset (Delock)


    But I am not able to add it to the network interfaces. I only see three veth interfaces to select which differ each time I am starting up.


    I followed the instructions here:

    RE: W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8125a-3.fw


    3 files are new there: rtl8125a-3.fw, rtl8125b-1.fw and rtl8125b-2.fw




    But still I cannot add the additional network card...this card should have a direct link to a second network card in my PC to optimize transfers.

    PCIe Mode is set to auto in the j4105 Bios


    Any ideas?


    Thanks in advance

  • Do you have internet access via another device on the server?

    Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.


  • The onboard 1gb works flawless as eth0 (mostly 90MB+)

    This is the interface for the home network... The second with 2.5gb is for PC - NAS only

  • This chipset is AFAIK not supported by the 4.x kernel series. You'll need a fairly recent kernel (5.6 upwards) and a recent firmware-realtek package (20200619-1 judging from the changelog).
