Ok, then I have no idea.

There's active work on iwn going on in -HEAD. I suggest updating to
that and then tracking development. No, I won't be backporting
anything to -9 or -8; someone else will have to take charge of that
(and field support queries when things don't work.)

Thank you for the help. I did see your iwn RFC when I was looking for other reports of this problem. I will try a kernel from -HEAD to see if it helps. BTW, any idea what changes between 8 and 9 may have caused this to stop working? The firmware is the same for 8, 9 and -HEAD.

Try jsut doing:

ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev iwn0
wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

.. ie, don't do an ifconfig iwn0 up

Same result.  I ran with ifconfig_wlan0="WPA" removed from /etc/rc.conf else
wpa_supplicant would start:
ifconfig wlan0 destroy

ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev iwn0
wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

After upgrading my laptop from 8.4-STABLE to 9-STABLE, I have been unable

Any ideas on what is broken and how to get it to work?
