Let me guess you have SMP machine with SMP enabled kernel?
In that case usb ehci have some bugs triggered with rum driver.

Workaround: disable smp:
# echo "kern.smp.disabled=1" >> /boot/loader.conf and reboot.

Fix:
use if_rum2 from usb2:

# echo "usb2_wlan_rum_load=YES" >> /boot/loader.conf

For this one to really work you need first to remove usb,uhci,ehci,ohci and
others old usb stuff from kernel conf, and use usb2 as modules ...
