	I have one of these:

	Pro/1000 GT Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller (82546EB)

	It has worked perfectly, with one tertiary exception that
happened due to a (non-FreeBSD related) driver change: for some
reason, DHCP tries to send packets before the driver decides it's
ready to accept them.  This causes a 30-60 second delay during
startup, but afterwards everything is fine.
