NAME

     ipwfw — Firmware Module for Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 driver

SYNOPSIS

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

           device ipwfw

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

           device ipwbssfw
           device ipwibssfw
           device ipwmonitorfw

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following lines in
     loader.conf(5):

           ipw_bss_load="YES"
           ipw_ibss_load="YES"
           ipw_monitor_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     This module provides access to firmware sets for the Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 series of IEEE
     802.11 adapters.  It may be statically linked into the kernel, or loaded as a module.

     For the loaded firmware to be enabled for use the license at
     /usr/share/doc/legal/intel_ipw/LICENSE must be agreed to by adding the following line to
     loader.conf(5):

           legal.intel_ipw.license_ack=1
