I use Hiro H50191 USB-stick wifi adapter, and it works on FreeBSD 10-prerelease and 11-HEAD but not 9.2-STABLE.
What I use it on is a desktop, not a laptop, where re(4) recognizes but can't connect with on-motherboard (MSI Z77 MPOWER) Ethernet.
You would add a line to kernel config

I ordered this wifi adapter from tigerdirect.com, and it is one of their more popular.
In all likelihood, other online vendors also carry it.
