Information on where to find the necessary firmware download & what configuration is required can be found in the iwi(4) manpage.

WPA2 is not supported in OpenBSD 4.3-release. WPA2 support for a limited number of wireless chipsets can be found in -current which will be released as OpenBSD 4.4 on November 1, 2008.

Note that the following article does not mention that iwi(4) support is included. The article was published in April, but I don't recall any other word being made since which includes iwi(4) support:


A quick review of the misc@ archives does not reveal any additional information either. Sorry.
