NetGear WG511T and WPA support on FreeBSD 8.2

Since I've run into problems getting an ndisgen generated driver for my
Realtek RTL8185 54M to work on
my FreeBSD 8.2 (i386) system - kldload on the driver generates a permanent
kernel crash-, I am currently
thinking about buying the NetGear WG511T PCMCIA bus driven card.

I would like to ask if there are any users on this list that make use of
this card and that can confirm whether
or not this cards works fine alongside with WPA/WPA2 on 8.2 or 9.0 if I
decide to upgrade?

I am aware of the supported hardware list. The card in discussion is not
listed as supported.
However, this could still be the case, since I read in an older 7.0 related
thread that it did work, at
least at one point in time.
