According to the PCI database, this is the National Semiconductor
DP83820/1 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.  As such, it should
be supported by the nge(4) driver.

The reason why it's not detected during the initial installation
is because the GENERIC kernel doesn't include this driver [sic].

Just type ``ifconfig nge0'' under root, and the driver will be
loaded automatically.  You can then either put the following
line in your /boot/loader.conf file,


or compile a custom kernel which includes the nge(4) driver.
