Is there any limit as of how many interfaces can

by themselves, once I put them together, it doesnt
matter what slots i use, I can never make more than
two of them work. For even though all the rest appear
up as well, I cant ping neither them nor their peers
(Im using crossover cables).
The software limit is 2^16-1. It sounds like you are having hardware
issues. I'd tend to guess interrupt routing issues. I'd suggest
posting details to freebsd-questions or possibly freebsd-stable.
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
