Finding the right kmod-module for NetXen NX3031

I am currently trying around with OpenWrt on a x86_64-system.
To connect to fibre I bought a NetXen dual SFP+ NIC that is supported by the linux kernel for around 16 years.

The NIC is recognized via lscpi:
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: NetXen Incorporated NX3031 Multifunction 1/10-Gigabit Server Adapter (rev 42)
01:00.1 Ethernet controller: NetXen Incorporated NX3031 Multifunction 1/10-Gigabit Server Adapter (rev 42)

Unfortunately I don't see new interfaces for this device. It is still only eth0 the builtin RJ45.

So I set out to finding the kmod for the NetXen drivers, but could not find them.
Now my questions are the following:
How can I find out if it even exists?
How can I find this module if it exists?
And if it doesn't exists, how can I build/make/create/summon it?

I appreciate your help.

What have I done so far:

  1. read the docs
  2. searched the web and the forum
  3. reddit
  4. searched through the linux sources
  5. searched through all kmod-packages using all the search-terms I could think of, even installing some packages to try them
  6. just use the netxen_nic.ko-File from my pc (wrong kernel-version, but I gave it a try)
  7. tried to find some distro with the same linux-kernel version but couldn't find any

I assume kmod-sftp is installed?

What does lspci tell you about the card?

Though your assumption is wrong, a quick install did not help. :smiley:
The lspci-output however is already in the original post and remains unchanged after the install of kmod-sfp.

but there's got to be more in the lspci output than what you C&P:ed, twice ?

ok, lspci -v then.

try the related parts in dmesg too.

Every PCI device has a vendor:product hex number much like USB; this is the best way to look for drivers. I think you use lspci -n to see the numbers.

Or in the log for the card on bus 1 we have:

Thnx, exactly what I was going for in my posts.

Okay, I have the numbers now, what do I do with them?
I cannot seem to find any drivers with those.

Only thing I am seeing now is in the system and kernel log:

NETXEN_NIC currently isn't enabled for any target and apparently not packaged either:

target/linux/generic/config-5.10:# CONFIG_NETXEN_NIC is not set
target/linux/generic/config-5.15:# CONFIG_NETXEN_NIC is not set

Adding a package for these modules shouldn't be too difficult though, but you will have to build OpenWrt from source and add your changes for the packaging (module and firmware, phanfw.bin).

Btw. lspci -knn is usually best for finding out which modules are needed/ in use for your PCI(e) hardware.

Okay, I'll have to look into that.
