You are likely not doing anything wrong.  As I understand it, the Model 
B+ uses a slightly different USB controller/revision to the Model B, 
and this might not be recognised/supported yet by FreeBSD.  The network 
is via USB on Raspberry Pi, so the USB support problem would cause the 
network not to work/be recognised.

This may have been fixed recently, though, so you might want to try a 
more recent image.
