What version of OpenWrt are you running?
Where did you get the firmware?
Have you installed/selected the driver associated with
What hardware or specific VM are you running it on?
Thanks for your info.
The version is OpenWrt R9.5.1 By Lean / LuCI Master (git-19.121.62139-9ee402e),4.9.17 1.
And I use opkg install the bnx2.c package.
Below is the output with "opkg list"
bnx2-firmware - 20190416-1
but it is not work yet, HELP again!
While that may be based on OpenWrt, it is not an OpenWrt build, so it is not known what might be different and how. OpenWrt, being open source, is modified by OEMs and individuals in ways that often include different kernels, drivers, and application software. Those builds need to be supported by the author/distributor, unless they're "very close" to current OpenWrt.
As it seems as though you've got a proper driver available (assuming it shows up in
lsmod), support for that build needs to go through its author/distributor.
Official OpenWrt builds can be obtained at http://downloads.openwrt.org Trying an official build may resolve your problems, or at least narrow down the possible causes. The group here can support those official builds.
It might be that the source is at https://github.com/coolsnowwolf/lede
git merge-base openwrt/master lean/master indicates that is isn't related to the OpenWrt git commits at all.
That source is effectively unsupportable by the people here.
thx for your great advices on this topic.
I will make a build from official rom.
