Assuming you have 4965 chipset,
yes, I do:
iwn0@pci0:3:0:0: class=0x028000 card=0x11108086 chip=0x42308086
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.
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 http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlegacy

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?
