I have had Lynksys cards that were not recognized, but in those cases I
was able to use ndisgen (after I dug up the Windows drivers) to create a
wrapper and enable those cards in both FreeBSD 6.3 and 7 -CURRENT (way
back when 7 was current). I haven't had to do it since 7.0-RELEASE but
I'd expect it to work as well.
