Now it's more clear.
ath is only the wifi interface, the cable one is:
Marvell 88E836 Yukon PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller

and it's not supported by FreeBSD either.

Is any if_ndis.ko (project evil) or native support upcoming for DFBSD?

Thank you in advance,                 \fer


Now I'll try, thank you -Matt.
ndiscvt first fails for UNICODE in yk51x86.inf, I've used iconv:

iconv -c -f CSUNICODE -t US-ASCII yk51x86.inf > yk51x86_a.inf

then ndiscvt gives me more parse errors and I've add comment to remove 
for following lines:

;HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum,	"25",			0, %Magic Packet%
;HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum,	"26",			0, %Pattern Match%
;HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum,	"27",			0, %Mag Pack Patt Match%
;HKR, Ndi\Params\WakeUpModeCap_A\enum,	"28",			0, %Link Change%
I report them here because I don't know how if they are to fix or to remove.

Now ndiscvt completes, but make fails:

% cd /usr/src/sys/dev/netif/ndis
% make
% make clean
% ndiscvt -s /usr/local/modules/if_ndis/yk51x86.sys -i /usr/local/modules/if_ndis/yk51x86.inf -n yk5 -o /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/dev/netif/ndis/ndis_driver_data.h

I'll appreciate any hint or help.
