Sorry about that.
I don't use FreeBSD but sincerely it's a little strange all these problems.
Have you tried PC-BSD?

If you like Arch, then use Arch!
Many people use BSD systems without problems or obsolete software.
I don't wish a war-topic about Linux vs BSD
I use NetBSD for my homeserver and Slackware for my Desktop. But I could invert them.

Wifi setup is definitely not impossible on BSD. It can be done from the command line like so:

# wpa_passphrase <ssid> <passphrase> | wpa_supplicant -i<dev> -Dwext -c/dev/fd/0 -B
# dhcpcd <dev>

The same commands would work in a GNU/Linux system.

If you like whatever OS you are now using, just use it and give the trolling a rest.
