iwm7265 device no longer working after 7265D firmware added in r314079

Ben Woods
Hi everyone,

I have been successfully using the iwm(4) driver with my Intel 7265
wireless card on FreeBSD-current for some time now, but with the recent
update I applied the other day it has stopped working.

I upgraded my FreeBSD 12-current:
From: r313908
To: r315466

I suspect the issue was introduced with the addition of the 7265D firmware
in r314079.

My dmesg output now shows:
iwm0: <Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 7265> mem 0xf7200000-0xf7201fff at
device 0.0 on pci2
iwm7265Dfw: root not mounted yet, no way to load image
iwm0: could not read firmware iwm7265Dfw (error 0)
iwm0: Failed to start INIT ucode: 35


Note that I do have the file /boot/kernel/iwm7265Dfw.ko (as well as others
for 7260, 7265, 8000C, 3160).

Any ideas what I can do to get my wireless back please?

Regards,
Ben

Hi,

Do you have something like `iwm7265fw_load="YES"` in
`/boot/loader.conf`? I needed to change `iwm7265fw` to `iwm7265Dfw` when
the new firmware came in, then everything seemed to work...

Hi Jon,

Yes, that was the problem. I made the same change to /boot/loader.conf,
rebooted the machine, and my wireless was back and working.

Thanks for that!

Regards,
Ben
