30.Nd "Firmware Module for Intel Wireless driver"
31.Sh SYNOPSIS
32To compile this module into the kernel,
33place the following line in your
34kernel configuration file:
35.Bd -ragged -offset indent
36.Cd "device iwnfw"
37.Ed
38.Pp
39This will include three firmware images inside the kernel.
40If you want to pick only the firmware image for your network adapter choose one
41of the following:
42.Bd -ragged -offset indent
43.Cd "device iwn4965fw"
44.Cd "device iwn1000fw"
45.Cd "device iwn5000fw"
46.Cd "device iwn5150fw"
47.Cd "device iwn6000fw"
48.Cd "device iwn6000g2afw"
49.Cd "device iwn6000g2bfw"
50.Cd "device iwn6050fw"
51.Ed
52.Pp
53Alternatively, to load the driver as a
54module at boot time, place the following line in
55.Xr loader.conf 5 :
56.Bd -literal -offset indent
57iwn4965fw_load="YES"
58iwn1000fw_load="YES"
59iwn5000fw_load="YES"
