The symptoms are that the wireless card is not recognised upon
installing the card but the pccardPackard, card, placard, peccary, packed, pecked, picked, pocked, pucked, pact, paged, paced, Ricard, accord, petard, pct, peaked, pared, parked, CAD, Cad, Pict, cad, pad, picador, Cart, Cord, Gard, Jard, PARC, Park, cart, cord, curd, paid, park, part, pica, Riccardo, scad, guard, Packard's works fine.

Typically a message such as:

Note: The power cycling should be just the same as ejecting and
reinserting the card in the socket, however it saves you reaching
behind the (most likely open) box or dislodging the not-screwed-down
cradle (if you are anything like me when installing hardware).

then edit _/etc/rc.conf_ to add the appropriate lines (On non-laptops

I have encountered one machine where this does not work. (Compaq Evo)
Sadly enough, Win2kPro on this box recognises the card without any
problems nor new hardware dialog. *sigh*

Another hack (untried) for FreeBSDFree BSD, Free-BSD, Freebased, Freebase, Freest, Freebases, Freebies, Freebie's [2] - PCIPIC, CPI, CI, PI, PC, PSI, PCS, PEI, POI, SCI, MCI, XCI, PCB, PCP, PCT, PHI adaptors issues (FreeBSD
freezing on boot, not recognising the card or the card not working).
From a sysadmin mag article [3].

Add the following to _/boot/loader.conf_:

hw.pcic.intr_path="1" hw.pcic.irq="0"
I have no idea what this does.

also you may try turning off BIOS support for PnPNP, Np, PP, Pp, GNP, Pip, Pap, Pep, Pop, Pup, PCP [4] or auto PCIPIC, CPI, CI, PI, PC, PSI, PCS, PEI, POI, SCI, MCI, XCI, PCB, PCP, PCT, PHI
