>Description:
      FreeBSD 5.3 failes to detect this GIGABIT network card. Card itself have common Realtek 8169S chipset but combination of vendor and device id does not mach.


>How-To-Repeat:
      Just insert this card to PC. On box of card:
Vendor: D-Link
Model No: DGE-528T

pciconf -l shows for this card:
class=0x020000 card=0x43001186 chip=0x43001186 rev=0x10 hdr=0x0


>Fix:
      I have created small patch what add entry for this card. I have tested on my PC for around weeks (card is inserted into fileserver). 

1. Patch is located at http://andrus.members.ee/re.patch
2. Copy it to /usr/src/
3. Patch it: (E.g: patch -p1 < re.patch )
4. Recompile kernel (dont forget to add "device re") into kernel config
5. reboot ;)
