Description

If I'm correct, since the rewriting of https://tails.boum.org/support/known_issues/#wi-fi, there is no mention anymore on our documentation that the 'wl' driver is not installed in Tails, and why it will never be.

people are regularly asking how to install this driver and I feel it would be better to point them, like it was before, to a part of our FAQ or Known Issues page explaining why it is a better idea to do otherwise.

I just read https://gitlab.com/Tails/tails/commit/b949d0381595beb4dde7c1714d4f79edd1a5a410 and still think it would ease our (helpdesk) job to have this information written on the website (the FAQ seems maybe a better place than the known issues)

Ok, sorry about that. I didn't thought you care that much about this section.

I brought is back with 51e14b358a and 803ed633f4.

Tell me what you think:
