    The (online) FreeBSD Handbook says:

    In order to set up a wireless access point with FreeBSD,
    you need to have a compatible wireless card. Currently,
    only cards with the Prism chipset are supported.

    There is more info here:

    I have looked for a month, and for 54g on not-Microsoft the answer is a
    D-Link AG54G but I only tried it with Linux. It seemed to work but I
    suspect some advanced features and polish are yet needed. As for Link-sys,
    there is no support for anything in 54g that isn't M$. Prizm for
    non-Microsoft OSes is best.
