I have the same board in a server running 4.11 (FreeBSD 4.11-STABLE #0) and
no problems to report.  The nic is detected as "RealTek 8129/8139" but seems
to function just fine.  I would recommend building a temporary system, doing
an install and then once you verify all is well...  Swap the board into your
existing machine.

In regards to the hardware page, you can find it here:
