So there are 225 different wireless USB adaptors that are already
supported by FreeBSD. There are probably a lot more not listed here
which use the same chipset but are not added to the driver's manpage
Just grab one of these (starting from 10$) and use it. Going back or
staying with Linux because of some USB wireless stick is not a valid
reason. :)
