you can try the 2.4 beta,

for future reference: always check the hardware compatibility list before purchasing gear

Dell optiplex 7050 has a Intel i219-v and it is supported by pfSense 2.3.4. Which built-in nic do you have that is not detected?

pciconf -lv

I219_V should be supported by anything 2.3 or newer though: https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-src/blob/RELENG_2_3/sys/dev/e1000/if_em.c#L189

So if yours is not recognised it's not that NIC or it's some new variant with a different PCI device ID. pciconf -lv will show that though.

Code: [Select]
#define E1000_DEV_ID_PCH_SPT_I219_V 0x1570 /* Sunrise Point PCH */
