Tested with Intel network adapters on OpenBSD 6.4

Connect to Wi-Fi and Ethernet networks from OpenBSD

Configure your local network (enable Wi-Fi access point in WPA2 mode, DHCP server, and router).

Install OpenBSD on your computer.

Connect to Ethernet network

It should works out of the box.

OpenBSD has em(4) driver for Intel Ethernet network adapter and as in case with many other network drivers em0 network interface should be configured by OpenBSD installer. You can change the configuration anytime.

# echo 'dhcp
up' > /etc/hostname.em0
#
# chown root:wheel /etc/hostname.em0
# chmod 0640 /etc/hostname.em0
#
# sh /etc/netstart
em0: no link... got link
em0: bound to 192.168.1.2 from 192.168.1.1 (yy:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy)
#

Connect to Wi-Fi network

OpenBSD has iwm(4) driver for Intel Wireless network adapter, but it requires firmware files as most of wireless drivers.

OpenBSD runs fw_update(1) to install a prepackaged version of the firmware on the first boot, but you can run fw_update anytime, make sure your Ethernet network is up.

# fw_update
iwm-firmware-0.20170105: ok
#

Write your network configuration (incl. password) to hostname.if(5) and run netstart(8) to start up network.

# echo 'join Home wpakey p@ssw0rd
dhcp
up' > /etc/hostname.iwm0
#
# chown root:wheel /etc/hostname.iwm0
# chmod 0640 /etc/hostname.iwm0
#
# sh /etc/netstart
iwm0: no link... got link
iwm0: bound to 192.168.1.2 from 192.168.1.1 (yy:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy)
#

Connect to another Wi-Fi network

Scan to find Wi-Fi networks near you with ifconfig(8). Update your network configuration and start up network.
