Realtek cards generally use the re(4) driver:

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=3Dre

Note that the list of different network cards in that page is not
exhaustive: it's just some variants that are known to work.  Most cards
using one of the referenced chipsets should work.

Note 2: "work" in the context of realtek chipsets means that they will
work fine for personal usage levels.  Don't expect realtek NICs to be
able to drive your webserver continually pumping out several megabits
per second.

	Cheers,

	Matthew
