    Getting wifi to work on FreeBSD is nearly impossible.

    I've searched Google. I've searched the FreeBSD forums and documentation. Every computer that I've tried FreeBSD on, getting wifi to work isn't possible. I got it to work once with a USB Netgear dongle, but even then it was a hassle and was extremely slow. I know the forum rules forbid "Why...

    Unstable WiFi Speeds Intel 8265/8275

My motherboard has an intel 8265/8275 which from my understanding is supported by the iwm driver. The main issue is...

    I have a Realtek RTL8192EU USB NIC and the transfer (download) speed is very slow (maximum of 200k/s). On Linux I get a medium speed of 1000k/s, which is what I would expect and also matches up with the output of speedtest-cli. * dmesg * ifconfig in /etc/rc.conf I have: wlans_rtwn0="wlan0"...

    iwm in FreeBSD 13 Hardware Notes

    I was going through the FreeBSD 13 Hardware Notes and couldn't find any mention of the wireless network adapters supported by iwm driver. Is this a mistake or is there any reason behind it e.g too unstable yet to use etc. ?

    wpa_supplicant.conf not being processed from rc.conf

    If I reboot and "service netif restart", my RTL8192CU will connect to a random available network, but will not get an IP address. It seems to not be looking at wpa_supplicant.conf. If I reboot and do "wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf", I will connect to the network specified...

    Well, I had a wireless adapter laying around, so I put it in the machine. The kernel sees it as a rlphy0 but that's the only place that I can find it. Here's the relevant dmesg. rlphy0: <RTL8201L 10/100 media interface> PHY 9 on miibus0 rlphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX...
