head boot/loader.conf:
g1-55(12.2-S)[2] grep -i '^[a-z]' boot/loader.conf
dumpdev="/dev/ada0s4b"
ahci_load="YES"
coretemp_load="YES"
iwn5000fw_load="YES"
cuse_load="YES"
geom_eli_load="YES"
filemon_load="YES"
kernels="kernel kernel.old kernel.save"
hint.hdaa.0.nid33.config="as=1 seq=15 device=Headphones"
cpu_microcode_load="YES"
cpu_microcode_name="/boot/firmware/intel-ucode.bin"
machdep.hyperthreading_intr_allowed=1
vm.debug.divisor=4
vbe_max_resolution=1920x1080
nvidia-modeset_load="YES"

(I just checked, and the only difference between the "head" version of
the file and the "stable/13" version is a comment line.)


head etc/rc.conf relevant lines:

ifconfig_em0="DHCP"
wlans_iwn0=wlan0
ifconfig_wlan0="WPA DHCP -ht"
synchronous_dhclient="YES"

(which is the same as for stable/13)

If you do, a reality check would almost certainly be helpful. :-)
