Question RTL8192CE Can't Find Any Routers (wireless)
I am using a RTL8192CE. In Windows it is listed as
1x1 11 b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter
In PC-BSD it shows up in the Network Manager as
re0 (RealTek 8168/8111 B/C/CP/D/DP/E PCIe Gigabit Ethernet)
Alas, it does not detect any wireless routers. I know Debian detects my router as wlan0, so that is what I think is missing.

edit: When I use Konsole and enter the command
I get a big list of errors that starts with "ACPI Error: " and many of them say "AE_NOT_EXIST" so maybe this is related to the reason I can not detect my wireless router. Could that be it?

re0 is your realtek ethernet card, not the realtek wireless card.

There is no native FreeBSD/PC-BSD driver for this card at this time. You could try converting a Windows driver using these instructions:

However, it may be easier to use a USB wireless card that is supported until a driver is available.
