  1. Seeking help for "unknown product" Realtek (network card)

    First time posting:
    I recently installed a new network card (Netgear GA311), which appears
    to be based on the SIS 900 controller chip. Although it isn't listed in
    the hardware compatibility list of OpenBSD 3.4, I assumed I could make
    it work. However, I am getting an "unknown product" in my dmesg and not
    quite sure how to resolve this. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Upgrade to at least OpenBSD 3.6, earlier releases do not support this
    hardware.

    Thanks for this information.

    How about upgrading to something remotely modern? There are many known
    issues with OpenBSD 3.4, most of which actually appear on the errata
    pages.

    According to your dmesg, the driver does not recognize the card. This is
    quite possible, especially if the hardware is newer than the driver.

    You might want to look at the changes on files in the relevant portion
    of the source tree - apart from the driver itself,
    /usr/src/sys/dev/pci/pcidevs. However, it's better to upgrade.

    (Note: I do not know whether or not this card is supported at all!)
