You did not mention what Version of FreeBSD you're using with this
card. I've a problem with a DWL-G650 on FreeBSD 7.0: When the card is
inserted while the machine is booting it is unusable after hal is
started. hal fills /var/log/syslog with "unable to reset hardware" and
other error messages.
As a workaround I boot without the card being inserted. It's not that
nice because there is a change that the card will not be configured
automatically, but at least it works.
