While I can't answer the question directly, I can tell you that I've been
struggling with this same card under 5.1 and 5.2-RC, and haven't found a
solution. On a linux list, I found a note where someone said that LinkSys
makes two very different cards, and calls both of them WMP11. (One is type
3 and one is type 4.) My guess is that only one of these is supported by
FreeBSD (or linux, for that matter).
Hopefully, someone on this list, or freebsd-mobile, where I'm copying this
reply, will have a more authoritative answer.
