problem: 7.2-Release doesn't detect either network device.

Just picked up a HP DV4-2153 laptop from Costco. I don't know how new it is; but it may be fairly new. In the store I was able to determine the wireless device to be Atheros. I don't know what the wired device is. I never booted WinD'OH!s on the machine. I just loaded it up with FreeBSD 7.2-R.

1) Has anybody had success with this particular laptop?
2) Are there any tricks for determining the network devices? I tried kldload-ing every network device and had no luck.


 "What did you do?" the man holding the flashlight asked.

 "I put down a spider," he said, wondering why the man didn't see; in the beam of yellow light the spider bloated up larger than life. "So it could get away."
