The network adapter found in this^ crappy commodity board fails to attach.
The NIC in question seems to be a 'RTL8111/8168 Express Gigabit Ethernet' with the vendor:product id of 10ec:8168. I presume the right driver should be re(4) which claims to support this chipset. If it is any help this MB has a horrible UEFI BIOS. Let me know if there is anything else I can provide?

Try FreeBSD with a 'RTL8111/8168 Express Gigabit Ethernet' NIC.
It is known that GNU/Linux attaches this NIC and was found to work fine.
Possibly just a case of adding the product id to the driver?
