Moving the license agreement phrase did not change the driver/firmware 

I changed the firmware timeout setting 
and this seemed to help somewhat. Now I sometimes pick up a wireless network 
after rebooting, but the connection is not stable; moreover, I cannot change 

I've come to the same conclusion, that fixing a broken iwi driver is more 
trouble than purchasing a cheap wireless card. This machine has undergone a 
few warranty repairs (including a motherboard replacement). I wonder if that 
complicates the driver issue. 

I'm just getting started with FreeBSD; therefore, your replies were especially 
helpful: Thanks for responding!
Best Wishes,
