Thank you for your time.
Hi, according to the manpage, rtwn should be the correct driver (based solely on a quick search using root@bsdpkgbuild:~ # apropos Realtek | grep -i 8188ce rtwn(4) - Realtek RTL8188CE PCIe IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless network device ) and a quick read of the manpage suggests adding if_rtwn_load="YES" legal.realtek.license_ack=1 rtwn-rtl8192cfwU_load="YES" rtwn-rtl8192cfwU_B_load="YES" to /boot/loader.conf and rebooting. check its been seen ok by running sysctl net.wlan.devices which should return something like net.wlan.devices: rtwn0 from there you should be ok to follow the handbook on wireless.
