    Command:

    iwi

    
         your kernel configuration file:
    
               device iwi
               device iwifw
               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_iwi_load="YES"
    
         In both cases, place the following line in loader.conf(5) to acknowledge
         the firmware license (see below):
    
               legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         The iwi driver provides support for Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2915ABG
         MiniPCI and 2225BG PCI network adapters.  iwi supports station, adhoc,
         and monitor mode operation.  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 iwifw module to work.
         For the loaded firmware to be enabled for use the license at
         /usr/share/doc/legal/intel_iwi/LICENSE must be agreed by adding the fol-
         lowing line to loader.conf(5):
    
               legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1
    
    
    

    FILES

         /usr/share/doc/legal/intel_iwi/LICENSE  iwi firmware license
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

         Join an existing BSS network (i.e., connect to an access point):
    
               ifconfig wlan create wlandev iwi0 inet 192.168.0.20 \
                   netmask 0xffffff00
    
         Join a specific BSS network with network name "my_net":
    
               ifconfig wlan create wlandev iwi0 ssid my_net up
    
         Join a specific BSS network with 64-bit WEP encryption:
    
               ifconfig wlan create wlandev iwi0 ssid my_net \
                       wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890 weptxkey 1 up
    
         Join a specific BSS network with 128-bit WEP encryption:
    
         iwi%d: could not load firmware image '%s'  The driver failed to load the
         firmware image using the firmware(9) subsystem.  Verify the iwifw(4)
         firmware module is installed and the license agreement loader(8) tunable
         has been set.
    
         iwi%d: could not load boot firmware  An attempt to upload the boot
         firmware image to the onboard microcontroller failed.  This should not
         happen.
    
         iwi%d: could not load microcode  An attempt to upload the microcode image
         to the onboard microcontroller failed.  This should not happen.
    
         iwi%d: could not load main firmware  An attempt to upload the main
         firmware image to the onboard microcontroller failed.  This should not
         happen.
