Can you try a prerelease of 7.1, it has the igb driver which I suspect 
will support that nic:

Also would you mind posting the output of pciconf -lv   which we could 
use to be more sure which driver you need?  I would personally be 
interested in that output plus the dmesg output because I plan to buy 
the same model laptop and I think you are the first person to be found 
on the web running FreeBSD on it :)  Thanks.
