Here is primitive manual setup of wifi connection that I documented. https://forums.ghostbsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=570
You originally created a "wlandev" when first setup your wifi connection. This is here as a detail configuration note example.
# ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev rtwn0
# ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ath0
# ifconfig wlan0 list caps
Or Adhoc Mode section 31.3.5
#<nowiki> ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ath0 wlanmode adhoc </code>
<code><nowiki># ifconfig wlan0 up scan
ifconfig wlan0 up scan
ifconfig wlan0 up scan > mylist_of_local_access_pts

You can look at the code for wpa_supplicant.
Here's the man page, https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=wpa_supplicant&sektion=8
"sysctl -n net.wlan.devices" will give you the device
"pciconf -lv" will give you the vendor and device in the output
The device driver and wpa_supplicant source code can provide details.

on Telgram on 15.02.2020 at 5:15: If you have already set up your wireless card then run this command
ifconfig wlan0 list scan
It will list all the wireless networks that the card can see along side some of the features offered.
You can then edit /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf and enter the details of the wireless network you want to connect to.
Also, man ifconfig will give you all the things you can do with your wireless card.
