I'm not certain that everything Linksys puts out has FreeBSD-supported
hardware inside. I have a bunch of TRENDnet TEW-443PI and Netgear WG311T
cards that work well. They use the ath(4) driver.
As a general statement, I'm pretty sure that anything with an Atheros
chip inside (a fact often advertised on boxes of the products) that
doesn't support any incarnation of 802.11n will work with said driver.
http://atheros.rapla.net/ has more details.
