iwm0: <Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 8260> mem 0xe1000000-0xe1001fff irq 17 at 
device 0.0 on pci2 

iwm0: hw rev 0x200, fw ver 16.242414.0, 

I'm using the iwm8000Cfw.ko driver 

I dont recall having this issue before January, but I've been jumping between 
laptops so much that maybe I didn't notice this before because this laptop 
normally is sitting in a docking station. When I noticed the issue, I thought 
it was due to me screwing around on my local TrueOS system. However after 
testing on the latest FreeBSD release, I have the same problems. The wireless 
device is detected, and is listed with ifconfig. I can scan with the device 
without issue, but I can't attach to any network (open or encrypted). Somewhat 
randomly when I try to connect with wpa_supplicant the entire interface dies 
and I have to restart the device. I have tested the machine (Lenovo x250) with 
Windows and two Linux distros (Slackware, ArchLinux) and the wireless works 
fine, so I know it's not a hardware issue. 

I'm a bit out of my depth here, but I'll read up in the docs about how to get a 
dump for you.
