To automate the process at each boot, create a file /etc/local.d/01ethernet.start containing the following lines:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
# Force the broadcom module to be loaded before the tg3 module:
rmmod tg3 && modprobe broadcom && modprobe tg3
and make it executable:

Code: Select all

# chmod +x /etc/local.d/01ethernet.start
(N.B. The above assumes you are using OpenRC, not systemd.)

Thank you, everything works now!
I'm thinking if we're gonna have this topic in a specialised subforum, we might as well move the complete thread (not just the ethernet part) to networking. It seemed a good place to me here because this is one of the typical issues that frequently come up after first installing a new distro. However, moderators please decide about the right place as you see fit.

Good to know. Moving the thread to the 'Networking and Wireless' shed (forum), as it is more appropriate.

Hi,

And how to automate it if using systemd? If by any chance someone knows...

Thanks in advance!
