How stable is FreeBSD WiFi support?

I have FreeBSD-70 machine and Linux Gentoo machines side by side (within
Gentoo Linux (with old AirLink101) connects to a particular encrypted
WEP network without any problems all the time.
FreeBSD (with ral0 device and native driver) connection is very
unstable, keeps disappearing, though network card shows signal level as
dhclient fails to set up the card, often dhclient succeeds but all name
lookups fails. When internet connection is established all TCP
connections get dropped after 10-20 minutes or less.
I feel like I hit some bug in FreeBSD WiFi networking support.
Anyone has similar experience?
