Is the Realtek 8125B LAN interface incompatible with TrueNAS?


Checked with the expert desk before buying a MSI B560M PRO-VDH motherboard for a TrueNAS CORE (ver 12.0-U8.1) , but it looks like either they didn't know the integrated Realtek 8125B LAN interface is incompatible with TrueNAS --OR-- the MSI motherboard is defective (yes, I did check the BIOS to make sure the LAN interface was enabled and the hard wired Ethernet connection is good up to the computer).

One puzzler is that there's no MAC address listed on the MSI product box, in the enclosed literature, or on the component side of the motherboard.

Can you shed a bit of light on this?
