If you have a wireless-AP you can hook that directly into a standard PCI nic
on the BSD machine. I have a similar setup where I'm at. I'm letting the
BSD do dhcp/firewall/nat/router/dns for each of my LANs. The AP is doing
WEP but for added security I have an encrypted VPN for the wireless LAN with
the BSD box doing IPSec for that. I combined 2 how-to's I found online.
Here are the URLs if you want to take a look.

Subject: Setting upFreeBSD with D-Link Wireless Router
I'm newbie and I'm trying to set up a test network
than isn't connected to Internet on FreeBSD 4.7
I was wondering if it is possible to set up my FreeBSD
4.7 as a authentication server for 802.1x security
using D-Link 624 Wireless Router.
1 more stupid question do I need a wireless NIC for
the FreeBSD box?
