FreeNAS supports the appropriate hardware of the FreeBSD-Version where FreeNAS is based on. But sometimes it is necessary to install a third-party or a self-compiled driver. My how-to “Install Ethernet driver on FreeNAS/NAS4Free (full-install)” shows how to install a downloaded binary Ethernet interface (NIC) driver on a full installation of FreeNAS/NAS4Free. This how-to describes the same for the embedded platform. It was written for non-experienced Unix users.
