Hi Lowell.

Thank you very much for your answer.

Yes, my PC box (2 weeks old) have this ethernet adapter and i am concerned 
only cos i installed FreeBSD 7.0 CURRENT and the adapter is not recognized.

Reading more about it, now i know this Attansic adapter is a PCI-E device,
let me question you. What is a PCI-E device?, what are the differences with
a common PCI device?.

Thank you very much, in advance.
