I'm running FreeBSD 5.2 current on a Acer Aspire 2000, which comes along with
the same Realtek chip. Sorry, on my installation lspci does not work:

Astor# lspci -v
lspci: fbsd_read: ioctl(PCIOCREAD) failed

But I managed it by activating support for realtek or load it by editing

device          rl              # RealTek 8129/8139
