NAME
     rtwnfw -- Firmware	Module for Realtek Wireless driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this module into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device rtwnfw

     This will include all firmware images inside the kernel.  If you want to
     pick only the firmware image for your network adapter choose one of the
     following:

	   device rtwn-rtl8188eefw
	   device rtwn-rtl8188eufw
	   device rtwn-rtl8192cfwE_B
	   device rtwn-rtl8192cfwE
	   device rtwn-rtl8192cfwT
	   device rtwn-rtl8192cfwU
	   device rtwn-rtl8192eufw
	   device rtwn-rtl8812aufw
	   device rtwn-rtl8821aufw

     Alternatively, to load all	firmware images	as a module at boot time,
     place the following line in loader.conf(5):

	   rtwn-rtl8188eefw_load="YES"
	   rtwn-rtl8188eufw_load="YES"
	   rtwn-rtl8192cfwE_B_load="YES"
	   rtwn-rtl8192cfwE_load="YES"
	   rtwn-rtl8192cfwT_load="YES"
	   rtwn-rtl8192cfwU_load="YES"
	   rtwn-rtl8192eufw_load="YES"
	   rtwn-rtl8812aufw_load="YES"
	   rtwn-rtl8821aufw_load="YES"
