D-Link 528(T) problems in 6.0-STABLE

My 6.0 stable server does not identify my D-Link 528T gigabit ethernet card.
I've been searching the net for related information with no luck. The
release notes for 6.0-STABLE states support for this card and I've browsed
the driver code which clearly is written to probe for (and find?) this card.


I've booted the GENERIC kernel which includes support for the 528, and I've
compiled a new kernel without re-driver support and loaded the if_re-module.
The result is the same (as it is supposed to be I guess).


Can anyone help me out here? I am unable to upgrade to a newer version of
freebsd because of the lack of HighPoint 454 card-drivers for versions above
