Subject: Which network driver for RTL8211 or 8201 NIC's?
I need to replace a failing motherboard. I'm aiming to keep the existing
Athlon CPU so I'm tied down to to a socket AM2(+) board and the
majority of those available seem to have nForce 630a chipsets and
RTL8211CL or 8201EL NIC's which aren't explicitly mentioned in the
<http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.1R/hardware.html#ETHERNET>. I see
that the strings RTL8211C(L) and RTL8201L (but not EL) appear
in /usr/src/sys/dev/rgephy.c and rlphy.c but the man page for the rl
driver only mentions RealTek 8129/8139 and I'm not sure which driver is
built from rgephy.c.
Am I going to have problems if I get a motherboard with one of these

I have an am2+ board in a machine with a realtek card and it is using
the re driver, might be worth having a look there.
