Wlan card installed but no wlan interface to assign?

Just received all what is needed to build a nice box with pfsense on it. Build everything, installed pfsense on msata and all is working… except my wlan card >:(
This is the stuff I bought:
Is there a compatibility issue? Did I bought the wrong wlan card? It's on mPCIe1 and fits just fine. All went so well. But when I am in the web interface I can't add a wireless interface. There is none? It's like it's not found. Hardware problem? Driver issue? Maybe some commands could help to figure it out. I'll search for it on the net, but is someone has an idea what's happening, I'd be glad to hear. Thanks.
pciconf -lvc => picture 1 (seems to be my wireless network adapter).
Damn… I should have done my homework before buying like an assh... This WLE600VX seems not to be supported.
Question: should I buy another one or wait for an eventual update that resolves my problem? Most probably option 1 so second question: what wireless network adapter works well? What do you advise?

If it doesn't show up in Interfaces, assign, then it's probably not supported by the current atheros driver. From the posts I've seen it wasn't working in 2.2.x and I'd guess it's still not working in 2.3.x
