Normally such firmware is available only from the manufacturer or  
specific vendor, either on a supplied install CD, when purchased or  
off their website as a download.

Generally third parties like don't have legal licensed rights to  
include it with their distro or offer it free of charge.

So I decided to try a ralink based card instead and having  
different issue

Why isnt there ralfw and where can I get this firmware?
I get the same error with my ral card.

Ralink firmwares may be downloaded and redistributed. Think they are  
here: http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2.
FreeBSD seems to build as a module/in-kernel with firmwares in sys/ 
contrib/dev/ral: http://svn.freebsd.org/viewvc/base/head/sys/contrib/dev/ral/ 

Hope someone knows what to do :)
