    X540 T2 port/network question

    tiaochiyu

      Hello everyone,

       

      I'm looking to purchase a 10gb network card to install into my Supermicro SYS-5018A-FTN4. I currently am running PFsense and I was wondering, the supermicro only has 1 pcie slot. Will this card be able to do one port for uplink and one port for downloads?

       

      The network I want to install will be as followed.
      Modem Arris SB8200> x540 T2 Pfsense box > Ubiquiti Networks US-16-XG > X540T1(homepc)

       

      I have no professional experience in networking. This is purely for my home/hobby use.

       

       

       

      Thanks for your help.
