If it's supported, it's been supported by 6.x since 6.3 according to the
man page. I couldn't cross-reference "T304" on the chelsio web site,
it's based on the T3 chipset and will "just work" :)
Follow the instructions in the man page with a BSD 6.3 machine to see if
If it doesn't, please repost the output of lspci -v here so we can see
if it's a card
that should work, but doesn't.
