Is your wireless network a non-authentication one, if it is wpa, wep,
you may want to try follow the handbook[1].

I am not using rc.conf to start my wireless, but I think give the ssid
in rc.conf may help, because there may be more wireless network in
your area if it is a non-authentication one.
ifconfig_ath0="ssid your_ssid_here DHCP"

After you give the ssid, what the ifconfig output?
Does the status change to associate?
If yes, you can try:
#dhclient ndis0
to get the ip from DHCP.
