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?

same happens with me and my Dell Inspiron 7357. This and the issue with audio os what prevents me from going full time with BSD. I guess part of the BSD spirit is to get our hands dirty and find (and code the) solutions and contribute do the project. Just seems beyond my current level of knowledge. Would be an interesting challenge if I knew how to start...

Please describe in more detail what you mean by "slow." Is it felt performance or measured performance? If it is measured performance, what is the difference? Wireless network is very complex, so we need details to even begin to help.

What version of FreeBSD? What brand/model wireless card? Which driver is used? How is it configured?

We're good but we're not clairvoyant. We have no idea what you have, how your system is configured and what you're trying to do with it.
