Hi list, 
I have ASUS a6m laptop with integrated RTL8168/8111 PCI-E Gigabit
Ethernet NIC, long time ago (7.0-CURRENT - 7.0-prerelease) I used it.
Than I started to enjoy BCM43XX wi-fi adapter and now I recently
decided to revert to the use of realtek adapter. But it doesn't work.
I'm just not running a network card or at all does not work?

some additional information: 
ifconfig shows such information, regardless of whether the cable is

%ifconfig re0 
re0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:1a:92:ca:b3:bc
        media: Ethernet autoselect (10baseT/UTP <half-duplex>)
        status: no carrier
