    Has anyone upgraded to High Sierra? My previously stable Intel X520 setup on a nMP over Thunderbolt stopped working after I upgraded. I now only get a self-assigned IP and manually configuring the IP still doesn't allow me to ping the router. Tried the various hardware settings without success. There has not been a driver update at small-tree.com since Sierra support last year.

    I also tried with a previously working Chelsio S310E card and got the same results, which is making me wonder if it might be a general High Sierra 10GbE issue.

    I’ve not had a problem after upgrading to HS but I’m running the card in a PCIe slot in a cMP so perhaps it’s a Thunderbolt issue?

    They seem to have now pulled this version and replaced it with 3.3.15.
    Anyone know why?
    Release notes when installing still show 3.4.1 however, the driver installed is indeed 3.3.15.
