T4-1 firmware update?

I just picked up a cheap T4 to play with...does anyone happen to have an recent firmware update for it? It's running a firmware form 2017 so not terribly out of date.

I threw Solaris 11.4 on there on a DVD. I am curious as to how booting an ISO works from USB also if anyone has any info on that. The manuals are vague as to how that actually works.

I'll probably end up running either Gentoo natively or in an LDOM as the main operating system, potentialy doing some compilation for older machines also.

IWI(4)							   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 						    IWI(4)

iwi -- Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2225BG/2915ABG IEEE 802.11 driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, include the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device iwi device iwifw device pci device wlan device firmware Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): if_iwi_load="YES" In both cases, place the following line in loader.conf(5) to acknowledge the firmware license (see below): legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1 DESCRIPTION
The iwi driver provides support for Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2915ABG MiniPCI and 2225BG PCI network adapters. iwi supports station, adhoc, and monitor mode operation. Only one virtual interface may be configured at any time. For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8). This driver requires the firmware built with the iwifw module to work. For the loaded firmware to be enabled for use the license at /usr/share/doc/legal/intel_iwi/LICENSE must be agreed by adding the following line to loader.conf(5): legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1 FILES
/usr/share/doc/legal/intel_iwi/LICENSE iwi firmware license EXAMPLES
Join an existing BSS network (i.e., connect to an access point): ifconfig wlan create wlandev iwi0 inet netmask 0xffffff00 Join a specific BSS network with network name ``my_net'': ifconfig wlan create wlandev iwi0 ssid my_net up Join a specific BSS network with 64-bit WEP encryption: ifconfig wlan create wlandev iwi0 ssid my_net wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890 weptxkey 1 up Join a specific BSS network with 128-bit WEP encryption: ifconfig wlan create wlandev iwi0 wlanmode adhoc ssid my_net wepmode on wepkey 0x01020304050607080910111213 weptxkey 1 DIAGNOSTICS
iwi%d: device timeout The driver will reset the hardware. This should not happen. iwi%d: firmware error The onboard microcontroller crashed for some reason. The driver will reset the hardware. This should not happen. iwi%d: timeout waiting for firmware initialization to complete The onboard microcontroller failed to initialize in time. This should not happen. iwi%d: could not load firmware image '%s' The driver failed to load the firmware image using the firmware(9) subsystem. Verify the iwifw(4) firmware module is installed and the license agreement loader(8) tunable has been set. iwi%d: could not load boot firmware An attempt to upload the boot firmware image to the onboard microcontroller failed. This should not happen. iwi%d: could not load microcode An attempt to upload the microcode image to the onboard microcontroller failed. This should not happen. iwi%d: could not load main firmware An attempt to upload the main firmware image to the onboard microcontroller failed. This should not happen. SEE ALSO
