if it is a BCM5704C. you shoul use the Boradcom tg3 driver for your card.

lspci shoul normaly report the correct ChipID.

In the manual stands:

? Two Broadcom® BCM5704C dualchannel
Gigabit Ethernet controller
? Two RJ-45 LAN connectors with LEDs
? Connected to PCI-X Bridge A
? Three Front Panel LED headers
? One Intel® 82551QM 10/100 Ethernet
controller (Optional)
? Stacked USB 1.1 (two) ports and RJ45
LAN port on top
