    I just installed FreeBSD on my new Dell laptop. And I found the system could not recognize my NIC.

    The out put of ifconfig is like this :

    Code:
    lo0: flags=......
    


    There's only lo0.

    But pciconf -lv shows that there is a driver for my NIC:

    Code:
    re0@pci0:3:0:0: class=0x02000 ...
    vendor = 'Realtk Semiconductor'
    device = 'Realtke 10/10/100 ......
    class = network
    subclass = ethernet
    


    How can I fix this? A laptop without internet is really useless.

    You can apply the patch with a usb drive or wait for the next snapshot of stable.
