    Ethernet link interfering with wifi signal

    I have been experiencing intermittent wifi issues for the past 1-2 years. I had aways thought it was my internet service provider - although interestingly, turning wifi off and on again on my laptop, usually solved the issue (temporarily). Then last week I tried something new: I disconnected the...

    RTL8821CE driver?

    Hello, As sure as some of you know, getting WiFi to work on this OS can be a hassle - especially when the network card you have is not supported. Just curious - will there be the prospect of an RTL8821CE driver in FreeBSD?

    No network interface when installing

    I'm installing FreeBSD 12.1 in a laptop, and when the installation prompts to configure the network (IPv4/IPv6), no adapter appears. I entered another tty (Alt+F4) and run ifconfig, where only lo0 device shows up. Any idea on how to make it recognize the WiFi card?

    Intel driver for H87 WLAN

    Hi forum I'm new to FreeBSD and having version 11.3 on GA-H87N-Wifi motherboard. Most things working as intended, except the WLAN. Does anybody know whether there's an Intel (?) driver that can solve this problem ? TIA's for any tips or clues.

    Unsupported wifi driver workaround

    Wifi support is the only thing holding me back from switching to FreeBSD from Arch and Manjaro Linux (I have yet to test touchpad support since I don't have wifi to install KDE). I read somewhere that Windows drivers can be used to suppliment missing FreeBSD wifi drivers using something called...

    WiFi for Lenovo Flex 14?

    I have a Lenovo Flex 14 from Amazon, and I have been hoping to install FreeBSD on it. I have experience with Linux (Arch, Gentoo, Void, and most of the generic Desktop Distributions), but the package systems (pacman, emerge, xbps, apt-get) never seem to appeal to me, whereas FreeBSD's system...

    Managing networks on a laptop

    I'm currently on Arch Linux and I'm interested in trying with FreeBSD with KDE Plasma (and likely bspwm as an alternative session) on my laptop again after quite some time, and I'm wondering what the way to go there is for managing networks, so easily connecting to and switching between public...

    Another BCM4322 (FreeBSD 12)

    I would like to apologise in advance, if this is straight-forward, and/or answered elsewhere on the forum--I have tried for the past few hours to look hard before I dared ask any questions, and I combed through the WiFi section of the Handbook, etc. Basically, in short, I am using an EliteBook...

    WiFi works but slow

    I've installed FreeBsd 12 on my laptop and Wifi, although works, is quite slow. It's way slower than it was at Linux on the same laptop. Is that how it is in Freebsd?

    Solved forcing what SSID to pick in wpa_supplicant.conf

    Hello Forum Users, I have an issue with the WiFi of a home-office I set up for a friend. Most of the time things work as expected, but about once every month the system gives my friend real trouble.

    Manually Backporting Drivers?

    My laptop uses the RTL8188EE chipset for WiFi, which recently landed support in FreeBSD with this commit. I'd like to be able to use this new driver on my laptop while remaining as close to a "stable" system as possible. What's the best way to go about doing this? I'm not sure if the driver...
