Hi Vinicius,

Using the code from the port

[betom at ayiin] [Mon Apr 10 11:03:50 2006]
$ pkg_info | grep iwi
iwi-firmware-2.4_2  Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 Driver Firmware

in /etc/rc.conf :
# Built-In Wireless
ifconfig_iwi0="ssid MyHomeAP"

iwi_enable setting is read by the iwi.sh from the iwi-firmware port,
which I moved to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ so it doens't get clobbered on
world upgrades.

then it's just a matter of adding other wireless settings (wpa/wep,etc)
and do an ifconfig up... 

So I or other people can help you best, what is the *exact* steps
you follow to enable your card, and what is the *exact* error messages
you receive?
