I hate to sound like Bill Paul, but can you provide a little more
information? Like what card is this? Cardbus or PC Card?
I'd boot -v and also turn on the following tunables:
in /boot/loader.conf and post the dmesg here (or a pointer to it), in
addition to cc'ing me. My wife is expecting any day now, so I might
suddenly disappear for a couple of weeks. There are others here that
can help you out, however, if you post this basic information.

: $ dmesg > IL-dmesg
: $ pciconf > IL-pciconf
: Next, I rebooted it without the card:
: $ ls /dev > I-dev
: $ dmesg > I-dmesg
: $ pciconf > I-pciconf

: Any suggestions?
