I am presently running a Senao/EnGenius 200mW 802.11b wireless card 
inside a PCI adapter in a VIA C3 800 MHz mini-ITX system. It runs 
FreeBSD 5.0 and is my access point at home. It runs very well. I highly 
recommend the Senao/EnGenius cards. The cards work great in FreeBSD 
4.7, 4.8, and 5.0. I got my cards from:

As a side note, I could not get FreeBSD 4.7 or 4.8 to recognize the PCI 
adapter properly but 5.0 works like a charm. Hope that helps.
