When you say FreeBSD "sees" the card, do you mean it is associated with
a device, or just that the card's name appears in dmesg?
It would appear, from the email message link below, that this card
requires the use of it's Windows drivers.
Follow the link below to the online handbook's chapter on wireless
networking. Read the whole chapter; but pay particular attention to
section 188.8.131.52.3, toward the bottom, regarding the NDISulator.
Best of luck,
