Need help finding a BSD driver

ive just recently started using FreeBSD (ive had experience with a couple flavors of linux and windows, and im seeing which OS i like best) and i can NOT seem to find a driver for my network card. This is on a laptop, and the card is an Airlink+ Cardbus network adapter, Model ASOHOCB, and Realtek chipset, and its a Type II card (by PCMCIA). The card has drivers for linux, and windows provided with it, but nothing relating to FreeBSD, or any BSD for that matter. Thanks in advanced!

What version of Freebsd are you using, becuase 5.3 is sopose to support alot of drivers compared to the older ones. It picked up my old wireless card without having extra configuration like the older versions of Freebsd
