I'm looking to fit a wireless card (several actually) that meets the
following requirements and was wondering if anyone could make
recommendations based on personal use of the card rather than some write
up or review.

PCI 
Got to work out of the box with FreeBSD 7.2 or later.
Support Wireless G (N would be a nice plus)
Supports a range of encryptions 128 bit WEP, WPA2 
Preferable with a wired external antenna. (Some of these boxes are in
strange places and the ability to locate the antenna away from the box
is desirable) 

Currently using the Edimax EW-7711 ln but having to butcher the make
file and manually compile drivers is a pain so I'm looking for something
that a non-*nix technician can fit.

Thanks 

Kevin
