| So I think
| it's reasonable to assume that I had the same firmware files you do,
Not necessarily, it may just be that your particular hardware is not
supported in NetBSD 7 - which model iwn is it?
Over time, more chipsets have been supported, and the number of firmware
files has grown.
Earlier (though I don't remember how far back) there were apparent
licensing issues with the files - it was thought that we were unable
to distribute them, hence the requirement (in the past) to install them
from pkgsrc. That question has since been cleared up.
