Where does FreeBSD look for firmware when it is required for a device to 
function.  I have /boot/firmware but there is nothing stored there.

I have a USB wireless device using:

Realtek RTL8188CU/RTL8188RU/RTL8188EU/RTL8192CU USB IEEE
      802.11b/g/n wireless network device

and a BCM4311.

The Realtek works the broadcom does not.  The broadcom bwn kmod cannot 
find the firmware and I have been unable to figure out what directory it 
should be in.
