Unfortunately the list management software ate your photo, but never
mind. Your verbal description is sufficient.

There may be a good reason for your quad card not being recognised, or
it might just be a bug.
If you run:
% pciconf -lv
You should be able to pick out your unrecognised device. If you ask
again on freebsd-net at freebsd.org and include relevant sections from
the pciconf output, you should get to the attention of some of the guys
that write network drivers.

Verb Sap. Calling FreeBSD a 'distro' is definitely non-U. We generally
consider penguins a bit fishy round here...
If you want to locate the kernel modules for various hardware, look in
/boot/kernel. NIC modules will generally have a name beginning 'if_'.
If you want to see what modules have been loaded into the kernel, then
There's also 'kldload' and 'kldunload' but they aren't going to help you
for this problem. PCI devices are discovered when the kernel probes the
bus at boot time: if the kernel hasn't already assigned a driver for the
device, then there isn't one available.

Keeps asking good questions and you'll get useful answers.
