Thanks for the hint!

What about the following patch?

 PC Card attachment supports the D-Link DMF650TX LAN/Modem card's Ethernet
 port only at this time.
+If the line "ed0: link state changed to UP" does not show up in dmesg, the line
+.Xr rc.conf 5
+will be ineffective. In this case, replace "DHCP" by "SYNCDHCP".

Don't hesitate to reword it - my englsh can be terrible!

Donation: if someone wants this card for investigations, I can bring it
at EuroBSDCon. It has 2 outputs: 1 RJ45 and 1 coaxial.
