isa (io-ports / irq) needs to be configured in 
-bios
-kernel ( or for the kernel in > 5.0 freebsd. I am not sure in 4.8)

I am not sure, but is polling mode not something for pci-cards?

I have good experiance with sweex or E-tech  ricoh chip 5c475 in Award
of ami boises ( and not old phoenix and compaq!)

These are pci.   

What does dmesg say about you controller and wi card ?
What io irq settings you use in other os's?
You migth consider to build a kernel with these settings
