Table 1 provides a handy resource for checking to see if your wireless driver is known to work on FreeBSD and PC-BSD. If a driver that you are using is not listed, please create a wiki account and add it. Devices should be added alphabetically (then numerically).

If you are unsure of the name of your wireless device, check the output of this command: pciconf -lv | grep wireless or pciconf -lv | grep Wireless. If it is a USB device, use usbconfig instead.

If your wireless device does not work, take a look at the tables on the Wireless Testing page.
