I have installed FreeBSD 11.2, on the ux305ca, but sysctl net.wlan.devices is empty, which indicates that it will be a stand-alone system as far as I can make out.

(No RJ45 ports.)

Am I alone?

If you're looking for a wireless adapter, it's net.wlan.devices, not net.vlan.devices. When net.wlan.devices is empty it just means that FreeBSD doesn't recognize any wireless adapters. That doesn't necessarily indicate the machine doesn't have any, it could be a card that requires a specific module to be loaded before it's recognized. Or it's a completely unsupported wireless adapter.

The best way to see what's actually in the machine is by using pciconf -lv. Hardware should always show up, even if FreeBSD itself doesn't support it.

Right, wlan. vlan got me an error message. I'm a bit cut'n'paste challenged here.

Eventually I saw a ...devices variable that was empty and others that were not.
