A few remarks:

I have USB UMTS dongle and sticks which work fine with FreeBSD.

The OP, as he says, has an USB wifi stick which works fine too with
FreeBSD and only wanted (for whatever "important" reason) a new "n" one.

He bought it without checking the man pages before, not even after having
problems he checked the man pages by his own to see if the chip is
supported or not.

I someone, including me, wants to have better or more recent drivers, he
should help in development or testing.
