    Command:

    ipw

    
         kernel configuration file:
    
               device ipw
               device ipwfw
               device pci
               device wlan
               device firmware
    
         Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
         following line in loader.conf(5):
    
               if_ipw_load="YES"
    
         In both cases, place the following line in loader.conf(5) to acknowledge
         the firmware license (see below):
    
               legal.intel_ipw.license_ack=1
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         The ipw driver provides support for the Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 MiniPCI
         network adapter.  ipw supports station, adhoc, and monitor mode opera-
         tion.  Only one virtual interface may be configured at any time.  For
         more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).
    
         This driver requires the firmware built with the ipwfw module to work.
         For the loaded firmware to be enabled for use the license at
         /usr/share/doc/legal/intel_ipw/LICENSE must be agreed by adding the fol-
         lowing line to loader.conf(5):
    
               legal.intel_ipw.license_ack=1
    
    
    

    FILES

         /usr/share/doc/legal/intel_ipw/LICENSE  ipw firmware license
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

         Join an existing BSS network (i.e., connect to an access point):
    
               ifconfig wlan create wlandev ipw0 inet 192.168.0.20 \
                   netmask 0xffffff00
    
         Join a specific BSS network with network name "my_net":
    
               ifconfig wlan create wlandev ipw0 ssid my_net up
    
         Join a specific BSS network with 64-bit WEP encryption:
    
               ifconfig wlan create wlandev ipw0 ssid my_net \
                       wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890 weptxkey 1 up
    
         Join a specific BSS network with 128-bit WEP encryption:
    
               ifconfig wlan create wlandev ipw0 wlanmode adhoc ssid my_net \
    
         firmware image using the firmware(9) subsystem.  Verify the ipwfw(4)
         firmware module is installed and the license agreement loader(8) tunable
         has been set.
    
         ipw%d: could not load microcode  An attempt to upload the microcode image
         to the onboard microcontroller failed.  This should not happen.
    
         ipw%d: could not load firmware  An attempt to upload the firmware image
         to the onboard microcontroller failed.  This should not happen.
