--- Comment #4 from Neil Tremble <ntremble at gmail.com> ---
I subsequently commented out the wireless related lines in loader.conf and
rc.conf, rebooting, then executing the commands manually:

 # kldload if_ath
 # ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ath0
 # wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
 # dhclient wlan0

The kldload is not required as it says the module is already loaded or in the
kernel. The ifconfig and wpa_supplicant commands appear to work properly. The
dhclient command does not obtain an address. If I manually assign an address:

 # ifconfig wlan0 inet netmask

routing still fails. At one stage I noticed the association had gone, so I
might need to do more there to get it to work at all.

I'll keep trying to get it going with a static IP because I would like to be
able to say for sure whether the issue is in the interface setup or just a
dhclient thing.

A static IP will do in the short term; if I can get that working at least my
wireless will be usable. As it is my laptop is tied the the wired ethernet.
