Check the motherboard documentation for the ethernet chipset, then look in the kernel config file for your kernel. It is likely simply not enabled in your kernel, or may require a second driver as do many of the ethernet drivers.

Hi, I recently download FreeBSD 6.1, and I've installed in a new
computer a couple of times and in none of the installation recognize the
integrated Ethernet card.  In the instructions that I follow in one link
on your website, it says that is recognized automatically.  What am I
missing here?  I'm new at unix or linux, I've only used windows and I
like to learn something outside windows, but I didn't know it would be
such a headache.  The motherboard is a PC CHIPS P23G or something like
that.  I also tried to compile the X11 but it display an error trying to
connect to, obviously because of the Ethernet card not
recognized.  Can someone help me with this???
dmesg should reveal something like the following for VIA chip sets.
Note that there is a bus interface which might be supported by a
driver separate from the VIA support.

vr0: <VIA VT6102 Rhine II 10/100BaseTX> port 0xc800-0xc8ff
mem 0xfdffe000-0xfdffe0ff irq 10 at device 18.0 on pci0
miibus0: <MII bus> on vr0
ukphy0: <Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface> on miibus0
ukphy0:  10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto
vr0: Ethernet address: 00:40:63:e6:41:ba
