Default asus wl-167g wirless pin question

I have checked the posts(well, on the spam filled forum I did anyway), and I see that I should load the ural driver.
But when reviewing the man pages for this, the only thing I see supported is wep.

My current wireless lan setup is encrypted using WPA2-PSK [AES].

Please tell me I didn't just buy a wireless card that I can't use. I do not want to use wep for my connections...

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Currently the os is FreeBSD 6.3 rc2. I would be more then happy to do a fresh install of 6.3 stable is this was suggested. Was thinking of doing that anyway. This machine is setup as command line only, it is my file server.. I am not so worried about the speed as I am the security.

For WPA security FreeBSD uses only wpa_supplicant.
wep could be set up also with ifconfig but WPA can only be configured via wpa_supplicant.

wpa_supplicant setup is straightforward.

Jack of all, master of none. Know a little bit of this, a little bit of that. But do not know everything about anything. That is what keeps me going, always looking to learn something new.
