I'd like to confirm my understanding of current status on this NIC. It seems, based on some searching, the current Realtek driver in FreeBSD doesn't support the 8111C, and that although the vendor-supplied driver _may_ work for older 5.x and 6.0 releases (if one can get it compiled, I couldn't), it doesn't work in 6.3 or 7. So the RTL8111C is effectively not supported. True?

A new MSI P45 Neo3-FR motherboard with an 8111C shows it working with 7.1-PRERELEASE. The support for the 8111C is pretty new (July in CVS), but so far it seems okay with this instance.
