Description cen5848 2015-05-04 17:16:35 UTC
Hello all,
  I have an issue with networking on a fresh vanilla install of FreeBSD 10.1 amd64. I've been trying to use the built in wired networking on a Gigabyte GA-F2A55M and when using a static IP any sort of network activity fails on boot. However, if I wait 15 seconds, and manually\script restart networking (netif and routing) everything works as expected.

The problem with this temp solution is that this breaks my jails and nfs client.

I first noticed this issue in FreeBSD 10.0 and I have not tried earlier versions, and anytime I've reinstalled this problem is consistent. This does seem similar to Bug 180852, but there has been no activity for a year on that bug. It is because of that previously filed bug that I'm using the second level severity.

If there is any additional information that I can provide to help solve this problem, please let me know.
