1. Check that the BIOS a) has USB support turned on, b) has PnP support properly setup (ASUS for instance has a non-PnP capable USB setting where the BIOS arbitrates USB usage and resource configuration, but since FreeBSD is PnP capable I turn that option off).
2. Make sure that you have correct USB support compiled into your kernel (just compile in ehci, ohci, and uhci in case).
3. Try a 7-CURRENT snapshot disk and see if USB support works or not.

      More information would be helpful as well if those suggestions don't work (what version of FreeBSD are you running, exact motherboard specs, etc).
