someone will probably have similar problem.
It is an extract of the DragonFly chat channel today earlier.

        <Sdav_> hello, i just bought a realtek 8139 card but it is not
detected (it was not detected with FBSD neither, because the vendor id
was not recognized) where should i add this vendor id to use rl driver
on it? same place than FBSD? thanks for any data.
        <swildner>      Sdav_: what are the ids?
        <Sdav_> none0@pci0:8:0: class=0x020000 card=0x00000000
chip=0x81391904 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
class = network
subclass = ethernet    // extracted from pciconf line command
        <swildner>      yea that's not in if_rl.c
        <swildner>      it's not supported yet.. the id is not in if_rl.c
        <Sdav_> i had another rl8139 before that worked, but this one is not working.
        <swildner>      Sdav_: *here was an url, i will just pasted the code here:

This may be the "Rsltek 8139D" (I am not wrong on the name ;) or something similar to Silan's 92301? It's quite different from Realtek's 8139. You can first try your luck with rl(4). If it did not work, I could do a quick "slash" porting of a fbsd4 driver (the fbsd4 driver was published by Silan in public domain?) or do you want to port that driver :)?

Best Regards,

I found a little inscription in the board saying "8139d" so, i guess i will have to use the new driver.
I doubt about been able to port a driver by myself, im not there yet, but if you can point me to some documentation i will try :-)
Thanks for the info.
