Hi Gary,=20

I ran into this myself.=20

=46rom rom /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC

# PCI Ethernet NICs that use the common MII bus controller code.
# NOTE: Be sure to keep the 'device miibus' line in order to use these
NICs!
device miibus # MII bus support
device bfe # Broadcom BCM440x 10/100 Ethernet
device bge # Broadcom BCM570xx Gigabit Ethernet
device dc # DEC/Intel 21143 and various workalikes
device fxp # Intel EtherExpress PRO/100B (82557,
82558)

It won't work without miibus.

> Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100, FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE,
