Default It's necesary to use firmware configuring rum or zyd?

Well due to the poor strenght receiving a signal using an Intel 3945ABG wifi card I'm trying to configure 2 more wifi cards with the chipsets rt7300 and zydas1211/1211B.

My question is a necessity to use something as firmware like in Linux? In this case are valid the files used in Linux? It's right to place these files on /boot/firmware

In my last dmesg come out with lines like this:

zyd0: <SMC USB2.0 WLAN, class 255/255, rev 2.00/48.10, addr 4> on uhub4
zyd0: could not load firmware (error=5)
device_attach: zyd0 attach returned 5

So I think that some firmware is required to launch the wifi card. Also is necesary to add the firmware files of Linux pertaining to the above Intel 3945B.

Well as you can see questions and more questions. TIA
