Hi there.
    What I know is Freebsd  has not support to the ADM chipset,  and I 
can tell you, I been  playing with that chipset on linux and work very 
bad, but this was 6month ago, so maybe now is working better, but I 
think wont work on BSD, should work on linux or windows

Some Googling seems to show that the card might -not- be supported yet, it seems to be based on the ADM8211 chipset, and further googling shows that ADMtek does provide both a Linux driver, and source code. (http://www.admtek.com.tw/download/ADM8211.htm) Has anyone ported this to FreeBSD?
