FreeBDS don't accept 4 networkcards

This doesn't exactly help identify the problem much either.

How about including the dmesg output from bootup, and maybe the output
from pciconf.  If the card isn't being detected you need to do some
detective work to figure out where in the boot process things are going

Is it not being seen at all on the pci bus? 
Is the kernel failing to recognise it for what it is? 
Is the device driver not probing/attaching the device?

Determining these things will ultimately point to where the problem lies
and hopefully identify the solution.
