    Can I compile Linux hardware code with FreeBSD?

    So I have a close-source wi-fi card. It works fine with windows ofc and fine with Linux because Ubuntu's developers develop a hardware support for that driver and its open-source.

    Intel AX200 Wi-Fi Module Support

    Hello. I recently setup a OPNSense firewall, and everything works great except it appears that FreeBSD does not support the Intel AX200 Wi-Fi module. Does anybody know if it will be supported in the near future, or if there is any way to get it work today? I've SSH'd into the firewall and run...

    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?
