--- Comment #10 from Graham Perrin <grahamper...@gmail.com> ---
I had symptoms of what may be the same bug on a different machine, an Ergo
Vista 621 https://forums.pcbsd.org/thread-20235.html and in this case, the GUI
to the Wi-Fi adapter was: 

* present with 11.0-CURRENTOCT2015 updated from an earlier version of the OS

* not present with a clean installation of 11.0-CURRENTOCT2015

Following advice from LooX in irc://chat.freenode.net/#pcbsd I added a line to 
/etc/rc.conf

wlans_wpi0="wlan0"

– then a restart of the OS, and then Wi-Fi was configurable. 

Now: 

$ date ; freebsd-version ; uname -a ; cat /etc/rc.conf
