        Assuming you have 4965 chipset,
 yes, I do:
 iwn0@pci0:3:0:0:        class=0x028000 card=0x11108086 chip=0x42308086 
rev=0x61 hdr=0x00
     vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
     device     = 'PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection'
     class      = network
 iwn0: <Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965> mem 0xdf2fe000-0xdf2fffff irq 17 at 
device 0.0 on pci3
 and I have:
 device          iwn             # Intel 4965/1000/5000/6000 wireless NICs.
 device iwn4965fw
 in the kernel config.
        this seems to be some weird firmware
        error. I see many users (including linux) reporting similar issues but
        could not find any definitive solution.
        At most you can try getting the latest firmware for your chipset and 
try it out.
        Probably from
 # cat /usr/src/sys/modules/iwnfw/iwn4965/Makefile 
 # $FreeBSD: head/sys/modules/iwnfw/iwn4965/Makefile 201209 2009-12-29 
19:47:34Z rpaulo $
 KMOD=   iwn4965fw
 IMG=    iwlwifi-4965-
 .include <>
 According to your link, this is the latest version.
 However, there is a question mark (?) against it.
 I don't know what it means, perhaps that they are
 not sure if it works correctly.
 I wonder if an earlier  version should be used instead?
