Check /var/run/dmesg.boot  file and look for boot messages to see if
the Nic hardware is found. If so then you have to read the kernel
source for the correct kernel option to add to your kernel source
and recompile to active the software drivers for you Nic hardware.

Subject: Network interfaces

Hi,

I have a Inspiron 5100 and I install FreeBSD 4.8 on it. The computer
has an integrated NIC. After installation and typing ifconfig I see
the there was no network interfaces detected. Typing
/stand/sysinstall and checking the network interfaces configuration
I see the fallowing:

faith0  <unknown network interface type>
sl0     SLIP interface on device /dev/cuaa0 (COM1)
ppp0    PPP interface on device /dev/cuaa0 (COM1)

Thank you for your time. Sincerely

Artem Tkachenko
