OK,

this is what i get: [NIC entry, not the rest]

none3@pci1:8:0: class=0x2020000 card=0x80f81043 chip=0x10508086 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
	vendor 	= 	'Intel Corporation'
	class 	= 	network
	subclass 	= 	ethernet


I minimal install from 5.1 made from the ISO images from the FTP site. as in a basic install using the /stand/sysinstall blah blah.
i'm not very good with installs as i have never really had much trouble before. should i make a CD from some 'CURRENT' version? all
my hardware should be supported according to the HAREWARE.txt in the CD image i have for 5.1.

[sorry about the email format. im using my thinkpad plagued by M$]

Overlong lines.

Do a minimal install, then run

  # pciconf -vl

The output looks something like (showing NICs only):

  rl0@pci0:12:0:  class=0x020000 card=0x032010bd chip=0x813910ec rev=0x10 hdr=0x00
      vendor   = 'Realtek Semiconductor'
      device   = 'RT8139 (A/B/C/8130) Fast Ethernet Adapter'
      class    = network
      subclass = ethernet
  vr0@pci0:18:0:  class=0x020000 card=0x764c1462 chip=0x30651106 rev=0x74 hdr=0x00
      vendor   = 'VIA Technologies Inc'
      device   = 'VT6102 Rhine II PCI Fast Ethernet Controller'
      class    = network
      subclass = ethernet

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