TypeO

I'm the first to admit I don't know anything about anything. Should it be
iwn or iwm for the wireless firmware drivers. Because I get an error say
unable to load iwm. I thought the wireless drivers for the Intel chipset
are iwn

David,  I would suggest reading https://www.openbsd.org/mail.html.

Actually, reading the entire FAQ is a good idea for newcomers.

Both iwn and iwm are wireless drivers, for different species of Intel

wireless chips.


Reading is a really good thing when delving into a new op system.

Fortunately OpenBSD is great docs.


In addition, https://undeadly.org/ is good reading, as is

There are others but that should get you started.
