first, add the line,
to /boot/loader.conf, then add
     ifconfig_ndis0="nwkey 0x2205801095 DHCP"
to /etc/rc.conf and then reboot.  If I got some syntax wrong and that
doesn't work, serch freebsd.org for 'wireless', and click on the link to
advanced networking in the handbook - that have a very complete and
excellent discussion of all the options.
