Sorry for the inconvenience.  Known Navigation header breakage of “Previous:” and “Next:” links, the Table Of Contents may be the solution for those.
However, unfortunately, the Table of contents may also be broken, and there may be other unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.
Presently the 10.1 Table Of Contents is being "reconstructed" becoming incrementally fixed while the other handbook versions may have various breakage.

(Sorry for the inconvenience)

Beginning with version 9.1, the PC-BSD® installer allows you to quickly determine if your system's video card, Ethernet card, wireless device, and sound card are compatible with PC-BSD®.

A "Hardware Compatibility" icon in Control Panel provides a quick overview of the system's detected hardware. To start the application, double-click its icon in Control Panel or type pc-sysinstaller -checkhardware.

In the example shown in Figure 8.4a, this system has a detected NVIDIA video card with a configured resolution of 1600x900, one Ethernet device using the em(4)[1] driver, and one wireless device using the iwn(4)[2] driver. Currently no sound card is detected, meaning that the user should configure and test their sound card using the Sound Configuration icon in Control Panel.

If the wireless device shows as unsupported, check the Wireless Testing page to help determine if a driver is forthcoming or if the device is well suited to converting a Windows driver into a FreeBSD loadable module.

Hardware that is currently incompatible may show with a green checkbox after a system upgrade or update. This indicates that the update added the driver for the device.
