from man wi

The wi driver provides support for wireless network adapters based around
     the Lucent Hermes, Intersil PRISM-II, Intersil PRISM-2.5, Intersil
     Prism-3, and Symbol Spectrum24 chipsets.  All five chipsets provide a
     similar interface to the driver.

however i have no idea if this includes USB adapters, the only usb
wireless driver i came across (or ever looked for for that matter) for
Freebsd was for Atmel based USB WLAN adapters
it seemed to work quite well when i tried it.
