Yes, I need to do that.
Sometimes happen that even if the interface
is showed during the bootlog, then it is not showed by ifconfig.
Typing ifconfig again show the interface.
Then I've to down/up the interface and/or ping outside, like the 
interface was sleeping.

The other card I'm using is:
em0 at pci0:5:1:0: class=0x020000 card=0x13768086 chip=0x107c8086 rev=0x05 
     vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
     device     = 'PRO/1000 GT'
     class      = network
     subclass   = ethernet

So, which card is the best buy for the server market ?
