Unzip & Place “if_re.ko” file at “/boot/kernel

Change ownership and permissions on the if_re.ko file

chown root:wheel if_re.ko
chmod 0555 if_re.ko

Then edit “/boot/loader.conf” to add this line:

if_re_load="YES"

Reboot.

Then go to diagnostics > command prompt in the WebGUI

Run the command

kldstat

If you did everything properly you’ll see “if_re.ko” in the list that comes up. If not, the driver isn’t loaded.

(i didn’t get it loaded myself. Added the line of code to /boot/defaults/loader.conf Then it worked for me)
