NI-MLX-10Gx8-D

Hi everyone,

I've bought a NI-MLX-10Gx8-D for my NETIRON MLX-8.

I couldn't get the module to work.  Here is what I did:

Does this mean I have to upgrade it from 5.3.0 to 5.4.0?

Thank you,

Thanks Michael for the reply.

Just to verify, BR-MLX-MR2-M is the one that I need?

Thanks,
