According to the user guide, this card uses a Broadcom 4306 & 2050.
AFAIK, these chips are not supported under freebsd. Broadcom doesn't
specs and programming information to the open source community. They
only support their customers if they want to make a driver.
For everyone looking for a working wireless card, the following advice;
- look through the manual pages for the networking device drivers to
locate supported chipsets.
- locate a card with a supported chipset.
Yes, this takes some effort, but until open source drivers are
commonplace, that's the way it is.
