I am having problems with a driver situation on my Proxmox 8. I have a machine with 1 onboard network card and 2 offboard network cards (1 ethernet and the other fiber).

As it seems to me at the moment, the onboard uses tg3, the ethernet uses igb driver but the fiber uses ixgbe, for some reason the ixgbe doesn't load or the igb driver loads on the fiber device.

How do i specify the driver to load on the correct device? Can i choose the driver to load per device with modprobe?

My onboard device is "Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries NetXtreme BCM5720 Gigabit Ethernet"
My offboard ethernet card is "Intel Corporation 82576 Gigabit Network Connection"
My offboard fiber card is "Intel Corporation 82599ES 10-Gigabit SFI/SFP+ Network Connection"

Sorry if this is stupid to say but it seems like the igb loaded 2 slots on the ethernet card and 2 slots on the fiber card, and 2 of the ethernet card are unisable.
