What sort of NIC do you have and what's the PCI id - http://www.vm-help.com/esx/esx3i/find_PCI_ID.php?

It's a Shuttle PC Box. First NIC is some strange card from lspci. Don't know the name right now.

I put in a Realtek 8139 card too, but that didn't get recognised as well. I'll go and test an Intel e1000 on Monday. I didn't see the nics on esxcfg-vswif as well. So I think this might be an unknown HW thing.

Thanks

Philipp

PS: I can tell you the exact PCI ids on Monday if needed.

A Realtek won't work but you can get a link to the driver here - http://www.vm-help.com/esx/esx3i/customize_oem_tgz.php. Most Pro/1000s will be good.
