iwlwifi(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		    iwlwifi(4)

NAME
     iwlwifi --	Intel IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax wireless	network	driver

SYNOPSIS
     The driver	will auto-load without any user	interaction using devmatch(8)
     if	enabled	in rc.conf(5).

     Only if auto-loading is explicitly	disabled, place	the following lines in
     rc.conf(5)	to manually load the driver as a module	at boot	time:

	   kld_list="${kld_list} if_iwlwifi"

     The driver	should automatically load any iwlwififw(4) firmware needed for
     the particular chipset.

     It	is discouraged to load the driver from loader(8).

DESCRIPTION
     The iwlwifi driver	is derived from	Intel's	Linux iwlwifi driver and pro-
     vides support for all chipsets supported by the mvm part of that driver.

     iwlwifi will be a successor to iwm(4) and may superseed that driver in
     the future.  It still complements the iwn(4) driver which supports	older
     chipsets.

     The driver	uses the linuxkpi_wlan and linuxkpi compat framework to	bridge
     between the Linux and native FreeBSD driver code as well as to the	native
     net80211(4) wireless stack.

     While iwlwifi supports all	802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax the compatibility code
     currently only supports 802.11 a/b/g modes.  Support for 802.11 n/ac is
     to	come. 802.11ax and 6Ghz	support	are planned.

BUGS
     Certainly.
