Do a minimal install, then run=20

  # pciconf -vl

The output looks something like (showing NICs only):

  rl0@pci0:12:0:  class=3D0x020000 card=3D0x032010bd chip=3D0x813910ec rev=
=3D0x10 hdr=3D0x00
      vendor   =3D 'Realtek Semiconductor'
      device   =3D 'RT8139 (A/B/C/8130) Fast Ethernet Adapter'
      class    =3D network
      subclass =3D ethernet
  vr0@pci0:18:0:  class=3D0x020000 card=3D0x764c1462 chip=3D0x30651106 rev=
=3D0x74 hdr=3D0x00
      vendor   =3D 'VIA Technologies Inc'
      device   =3D 'VT6102 Rhine II PCI Fast Ethernet Controller'
      class    =3D network
      subclass =3D ethernet

Show us what you see there.  If you can identify the NIC in the
output, you don't need to show the rest.
