The RTL8139D is a 10/100Mbit chip that is supported by the rl(4) driver and
can be found on the majority of really cheap NICs these days,
The RTL8169/8169S is a 10/100/1000Mbit chip that is supported by the re(4) driver
and is quite common on cheap gigabit-NICs.
The RTL8139C+ (which is not the same as the RTL8139C or RTL8139D) is a
10/100M chip which is also supported by the re(4) driver.

If FreeBSD cannot detect your NIC then you will have to send more
information to help people figure out what exact hardware you have
and what would be needed to make it work.

The output of 'pciconf -lv' should be a good start.  (Include the full
output, not just the lines you think are important.)
