I have had Lynksys cards that were not recognized, but in those cases I 
was able to use ndisgen (after I dug up the Windows drivers) to create a 
wrapper and enable those cards in both FreeBSD 6.3 and 7 -CURRENT  (way 
back when 7 was current).  I haven't had to do it since 7.0-RELEASE but 
I'd expect it to work as well.
