FreeBSD c 5.3-RELEASE-p5 FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p5 #19: Thu Jan 27 09:16:02 UTC 2005     root_(_at_)_c_(_dot_)_office:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/COMMUNITY  i386

      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.

      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

      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 ;)
