Hi,
regarding Toshiba (and probably other laptops having similar issues - may be related to Phoenix bios) I had the same problems with a Satellite P300 (recent model PSPCCE-04F00C), no wired (Marvell Yukon 88E8040T) or wireless (Intel 5100) network interface. All due to the BIOS clearing resources and FreeBSD not able to allocate PCI resources behind a bridge.

Attached patch worked for me, after building a new kernel:
[CMD="patch_and_build"]
# cd /usr/src/sys/dev/acpica
# patch -p0 < pcib_pci.patch
# cd /usr/src
# make kernel KERNCONF=<your-configuration>
# shutdown -r now
[/CMD]
Now all is working with 8.0-RELEASE/amd64, both wired and wireless networking. For the latter you need a recent revision from the iwn repository (revision 26 is working fine for me).

FreeBSD ts01.pims.net 8.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE #0: Mon Dec 21 00:10:19 CET 2009 pim@:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC amd64
