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.
