Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The driver is on your box, but you may need to read through the docs at this site. You should not need to actually build the driver even though it is in ports, but you certainly can if you choose. If you have any trouble just post here.
Thx for the reply, actually I had just found that site and was going through the steps when i ran into some trouble. So I came back hear to check for any replies.
I got through fine until it says
Then, make sure that your card is correctly recognized:
# dmesg | grep iwi
iwi0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG MiniPCI> mem 0xe0206000-0xe0206fff irq 11 at device 4.0 on pci2
iwi0: Ethernet address: xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
When i do so, I get no feedback
PCBSD# dmesg | grep iwi
then it says
Now, you must download the firmware binary image to the adapter.
For instance, to download firmware for BSS mode:
# iwicontrol -i iwi0 -d /usr/local/libdata/if_iwi -m bss
just tried that and it doesent work, I have desktopBSD tools installed so I am using the networking tray program. It detects my card, and lets me scan for networks, but when I do I cannot see any networks.
I think my network is channel 11 though, not sure how to change the channel. Ill look into it and try.
