No, let me correct that.

I think the APU hardware has some PCI-E slots.
I think I bought wireless hardware, that was advertised as being compatible with OpenBSD.

And I haven't been able to get it working yet.  :-(

Most of that work was in the December 2015 timeframe, so it was a while ago.

I've forgotten .....

If my memory serves me correctly, the APU hardware has some built-in wireless hardware.
I haven't been able to get it to work with OpenBSD, yet.  :-(

I do remember having to download and install a binary blob, but that didn't work either.

not sure what you mean with build-in, but the wle200nx miniPCIe adapter works fine for me, in hostap mode on OpenBSD5.9 (but that might be using a binary blob driver, cant remember right now)

funny how soekris-tech becomes apu-marketing every once in a while.. :)
