Perfect. Is "220BG" a typo? I see that iwi(4) supports 2200BG/2225BG and so on. If it _is_ a typo, try this: echo 'legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1' >> /boot/loader.conf echo 'if_iwi_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf echo 'iwi_bss_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf echo 'iwi_ibss_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf echo 'iwi_monitor_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf (Note, the differentiation between the single- and double-quotes.) After a reboot, you should see iwi0 in ifconfig(8) output. (I'm not aware of a way to acknowledge the license agreement without a reboot.) Then you should be able to configure your wlan0 device similarly to your Presario. Hope this helps.
