i've been having the same problems with iwm too (failing to load
firmware on boot). my trick has been to either boot into an old
kernel where iwm was mostly usable. also i've commented out the line
enabling wlan0 in my rc.conf then uncommented it after boot and
manually running "service netif start" to bring up iwm. that method
works most of the time...
I am able to load iwm (iwm7265fw), but there are some networks that I
just can't connect to (INIT -> INIT, swscan_cancel_scan, repeat).
Attaching to an iPhone hotspot is one example of a not-entirely-helpful
network, but there is other, more typical infrastructure that gives
trouble too. There is an iwm8xxx in the room that seems to work fine,
however... I do not meddle in the affairs of wi-fi, for it is subtle and
quick to anger. :)
