First time FreeBSD user here.

I have a wireless network card with a rtl-8812ae chipset. I checked and it looks like this is supported by rtwn in 12-current, but not 11.1.

I’d prefer to not use the development version if possible for my first time, but a lack of wifi really is a dealbreaker (I can’t run cable and my router is in a very inconvenient location). Is there a way to set up the latest version of the driver, and grab the required firmware, without upgrading everything else?

Thank you for the succinct answer. I’ll switch back to Linux for now, but I’ll keep my eye on the upcoming release.
