NAME
     iwi -- Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2225BG/2915ABG IEEE 802.11 driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	support	for the
     iwi driver	into your kernel, place	the following lines in your kernel
	 configuration file:

	   device iwi
	   device pci
	   device wlan

	 Alternatively,	to load	the
     iwi driver	at boot	time, place the	following line in loader.conf(5):

	       if_iwi_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The iwi driver provides support for Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2915ABG
     MiniPCI and 2225BG	PCI network adapters.

     By	default, the iwi driver	configures the adapter for BSS operation (aka
     infrastructure mode).  This mode requires the use of an access point.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

     This driver requires firmware to be loaded	before it will work.  You need
     to	obtain iwicontrol(8) from the IWI web page listed below	to accomplish
     loading the firmware before ifconfig(8) will work.

EXAMPLES
     Join an existing BSS network (i.e., connect to an access point):

	   ifconfig iwi0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00

     Join a specific BSS network with network name ``my_net'':

	   ifconfig iwi0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 ssid my_net

     Join a specific BSS network with 64-bit WEP encryption:

	   ifconfig iwi0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 ssid my_net \
	       wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890

     Join a specific BSS network with 128-bit WEP encryption:

	   ifconfig iwi0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 ssid my_net \
	       wepmode on wepkey 0x01020304050607080910111213

DIAGNOSTICS
     iwi%d: device timeout  The	driver will reset the hardware.	 This should
     not happen.

     iwi%d: Please load	firmware  The required firmware	has not	been loaded
     into the card, and	therefore the card cannot operate.  Load the firmware
     with iwicontrol(8)	before proceeding.
