Unable to load firmware for Intel wireless card


I'm using the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG card under FreeBSD 6.2, and for some reason the firmware doesn't want to load.

I did:

Code:
# cd /usr/ports/net/iwi-firmware/
# make install clean
Code:
# kldload -v if_iwi
Code:
# dmesg | grep iwi
gives me:

Code:
iwi0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG> mem 0xb4001000-0xb4001fff irq 21 at device 2.0 on pci11
iwi0: Ethernet address: 00:12:f0:c8:17:ae
firmware_get: failed to load firmware image iwi_bss
iwi0: could not load firmware
firmware_get: failed to load firmware image iwi_bss
iwi0: could not load firmware
firmware_get: failed to load firmware image iwi_bss
iwi0: could not load firmware
firmware_get: failed to load firmware image iwi_bss
iwi0: could not load firmware
firmware_get: failed to load firmware image iwi_bss
iwi0: could not load firmware
Any ideas?
