Thank you...

Yes, that works and shows I have BCM4310 wireless controller.

I am new to wireless nic's .
How do I load the driver or set this to work under FreeBSD?

This FreeBSD is working from a Flash Drive USB using the 7.2 down load 
that Manolis made for us. The main drive has linux on it and it works 
with the wlan so I think it will work once I figure how to make FreeBSD 
see and use it.
