current recommendations for using wireless N on FreeBSD?  My router is a
Linksys E2000, which supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz but not concurrently.
Supporting 5GHz is a strong preference but I doubt I'll have much luck
getting everything else to work at 5GHz.

Hi Joshua,
>From my experience an Atheros or Ralink chipset is generally going to be
the best way to go. Not sure about your system, or what type of device you
are considering, but if its going to be a USB dongle id go with Ralink
chipset device.
