Hi All,

I had the same issue with ZS 3.0.0 –

[ 12.131474] bnx2 0000:01:00.0: eth0: Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM5709 1000Base-T (C0) PCI Express found at mem c4000000, IRQ 16, node addr 00:aa:f7:71:e9:94

[ 22.450251] bnx2: Can’t load firmware file “bnx2/bnx2-mips-09-6.2.1b.fw”

My solution was to edit the ISO file (ZeroShell 3.0.0) and add the necessary fw file to the /firmware/bnx2 directory (within the ISO). I used and ISO editor to do this.

After this, both 5709 and 5716 cards loaded and I could use them.
