Installation on a Dell inspiron 1720. Here are a couple of issues:

1) The WEP key in my wpa_supplicant.conf did not have double quotes around it 
and it only started working after adding it manually.  wep_key0="xxxxxx"

[jhugo at pcbsd-1404] ~% more /etc/supplicant.conf 
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant

network={
 ssid="wifi"
 priority=146
 scan_ssid=1
 key_mgmt=NONE
 wep_tx_keyidx=0
 wep_key0="xxxxxxxxxxxx"
}

2) IPv6 needed this line in /etc/rc.conf for it to work on wlan0
ifconfig_wlan0_ipv6="inet6 accept_rtadv"

My ethernet interface worked fine, so I think it's only an issue with the 
wireless interfaces.

3) My screen corrupts after waking-up from a "suspend to ram". This worked 
fine on FreeBSD-9.0. I've tried my old xorg.conf from 9.0, but with the same 
result.

Some output from /var/log/Xorg.0.log
