find device in Hardware Notes:

[i386, amd64] Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG MiniPCI network adapters ( wpi(4) driver)

So, wpi is driver for my wi-fi device.

Following the instruction wpi(4), going to configure the kernel with options:
device wpi
device wpifw

You also can load driver without kernel configuring by adding in /boot/loader.conf
if_wpi_load=”YES”

add in  /etc/rc.conf:
wlans_wpi0=wlan0
ifconfig_wlan0=”WPA DHCP”

create configuration file for our wireless connection :
howtobsd#touch /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
howtobsd#vim /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

and add there ssid and password(for WPA-PSK):
network={
ssid=”yourssid”
