My Asus WL-167G wireless adapter works out of the box without any settings when 
I installed FreeBSD 6.1 RELEASE. The installer recognized it and I was  able to 
configure it through DHCP effortlessly. Maybe it would have worked in 6.0 If I 
did a fresh install or tried sysinstall.

FreeBSD 6.1 ROCKS!!!!

You may have this sorted by now, but just in case...

The good news is that you have the ural0 device, so now it's just a matter of 

Without encryption the only other thing I needed to specify to ifconfig was the 
channel (check the settings on your router for the channel number):

eg. ifconfig ural0 inet netmask ssid DRAGON channel 1

and I was on the network.

If that doesn't work, check the settings on your router - have you added the 
MAC address to the filter list, and are you sure WEP/WPA is turned off, are you 
in range of the router?

Take a look at this article for info on wireless setup:

Let me know how you get on.
