So far, it works flawlessly for me in client mode, no issues at all. I've not set up an access point before and I don't have any more hardware to test against it.

Hi !

Could you explain how you did that ? I'm new to the FreeBSD world, I come from GNU/Linux, and I've got the same issue. My laptop, Xiaomi Notebook Pro only got a wireless card, the intel 8265... I've installed FreeBSD, and I gotta patch it to get internet.

Thanks !

Hallo Guilllaume, welcome to FreeBSD :-)

You'll need to run FreeBSD-12.0-current which is the unreleased "latest kernel and world" version to get this device support. This might be a bigger step than what you're ready for right now, https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2018-April/281496.html has my comments for another user already in it.

You might want to give trueos.org a quick try to see if your device is supported already there, it is a desktop "spin" of FreeBSD current but still using the same code/drivers already in FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT, but with a few other differences. It's a good place to get started.

If you have further questions, just continue the conversation on the mailing list, I'll try to answer them there.
