i assume that you have kldload(8)ed ng_ubt(4) driver, correct?

if you did, and it still does not work, then could you please dump usb
descriptor for the device? quick google search suggests that at least
some of those adapters are based on atheros ar3011 chip (vendor/device
id 0x0cf3/0x3000) , and require firmware download. basically, very
similar to a certain broadcom chip, for which we have ubtbcmfw(4)
