  • You don't. All the supported drivers are already on the system.
    If you google for your message you will find this thread:
    http://freebsd.1045724.n5.nabble.com/udav-vendor-0x0fe6-product-0x9700-td4475969.html

    From what is written there a patch for newer FreeBSDs exist and should be in.
    (2.1 is based on 8.3, The discussion is about 9+)

    However if you plan to set up a productive system you really should avoid USB adapters and use real network cards. (USB network cards are ok for testing, but not for stable long running systems).
    If that's not possible you might want to look into the option of a VLAN capable switch.
