I managed to get WiFi running on my Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 chip 
on the newest firmware downloaded from http://intellinuxwireless.org/ . After finding out the chip's numbers with pciconf -lbcev I added one line to if_iwn.c, recompiled the module and it worked. 

Please find attached the output from `svn diff` in /usr/src.

Required steps in order to get it working are documented in the forum post mentioned above.
