For the sound^{1}, try loading the
$ su -
# kldload snd_driver

then do a
# cat /dev/sndstat

and that should guide you as to which driver you need.

For the wlan, you can do a
# ifconfig wlan0 list scan
and see if you can get some information and if you encounter
difficulties,  you may refer to ^{2}

This one is a bit more harder to answer, I am not sure if there is
networkmanager in the ports?
