There is no support for it under FreeBSD at the moment.  I've got
several sites connected with the usb version and that seems to be the
favoured connection type.  Most ISPs are happier to sell an external usb
box than an internal card.

If there is linux support it would probably be possible to adapt this
for Freebsd but it will only happen if there's a developer with enough
time and motivation to make it happen.
