The iwi(4) wireless card refuses to associate an AP in RELENG_6. It does work in RELENG_6_0. The problem seems to be in the 802.11 stack itself since neither old (iwi) nor new (iwiNG) drivers work. The new driver behaves even worse (including hangs) actually.
Try to associate an iwi(4) to an access point.
