I guess I missed your first post.

One thing I don't see in your posts is any mention of whether or not
you're running FBSD 4.x or 5.x. My experience with 4.x is that cards of
any type either don't work or work badly. I've had much better luck with
5.x. Aside from drivers, I believe this is due to the devfs which 5.x
uses. So if you're using 4.x, consider either upgrading or at least
experimenting with the FreeSBIE livecd to see what happens.
