Unable to attach hardware

I am getting ath0: Unable to attach hardware after installing a Netgear WPN311 into my pfSense box. I realize that is is not on the approved/tested Hardware list, but I also read that m0n0wall supports the Wireless G Cards on the new FreeBSD 6.x. Isn't the current pfSense version on FreeBSD 6.x? Also, is there a way for me to force ath0 drivers onto the WPN311? If not, does anyone know when this Wireless PCI Card might be supported in the future?

FreeBSD 6 is ancient. The current release of FreeBSD is 8.2. pfSense 2.0 is built on top of FreeBSD 8.1.
All that said, use hardware which is currently supported.
That card is based on the Atheros AR5004G yes?
I'm surprised it isn't supported already but a quick search doesn't show many people using it with FreeBSD. It's quite an old chipset and to be honest if it's not supported already it isn't going to be a priority.
Edit: A search on this forum shows quite a few people successfully using this card, or at least cards based on the same chipset. (if it is ar5004g)
