Hmm...  Have you been running FreeBSD BEFORE you installed your ethernet
card?  I was doing this before I got my NE2000 so I had to type:

kernel -c

at the Boot prompt (before FreeBSD loads)...  That will bring you to
another prompt where you type something like "visual" which will bring you
to the config screen where you were when you installed...

PnP should be disabled, at least it had to be with my card...  And be sure
you know the port/irq/etc of you card...

Simple stuff, really, but stuff that one is easy to forget...
