Default iwn0: fatal firmware error

I'm in need of some help.
I'm trying to run OpenBSD 4.7 (Stable) on a Fujitsu U820 Lifebook. I knew that the Atheros wireless card it came with wouldn't jive with Obsd, so I bought an Intel 5300 instead. I installed the card, and then installed iwn-firmware-5.3 as per the iwn man page.

But it seems I'm not having much luck with this wireless card either.

It's discovered on boot, but trying to ifconfig it for basic use (128bit WEP, DHCP) gives me the following:

Code:
iwn0: fatal firmware error
iwn0: bad firmware error log address 0x00000000
iwn0: timeout waiting for adapter to initialize
iwn0: could not initialize hardware
iwn0: no link ................ sleeping
iwn0: fatal firmware error
iwn0: bad firmware error log address 0x00000000
iwn0: timeout waiting for adapter to initialize
iwn0: could not initialize hardware
iwn0: fatal firmware error
iwn0: bad firmware error log address 0x00000000
iwn0: timeout waiting for adapter to initialize
iwn0: could not initialize hardware
iwn0: fatal firmware error
iwn0: bad firmware error log address 0x00000000
iwn0: timeout waiting for adapter to initialize
iwn0: could not initialize hardware
iwn0: not found
For a sanity check, it does work on the same machine in XP. Also, for what it's worth, the U820 has a switch to enable and disable the Wireless + Bluetooth. When the switch is off, I get a different message that pretty much indicates it can't find the wireless card at all.

Code:
iwn0: radio is disabled by hardware switch
iwn0: radio is disabled by hardware switch
iwn0: radio is disabled by hardware switch
iwn0: no link. ......... sleeping
iwn0: radio is disabled by hardware switch
And my dmesg:

I'm stuck at this point. If there is anything else someone needs to help diagnose what's going on, just let me know.

With OpenBSD, using a newer firmware along with an older driver is typically discouraged, he should wait for 4.8 or try a snapshot.

oh woops, I thought I was on the 4.7 version of the man page, but it just defaulted to current when it didn't find the 4.7 one.

freebsd.org has the 4.7 man pages: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?q....7&format=html

Don't worry, I almost did the same thing and tried 5.5 before I remembered the man pages online were probably -current and not -stable.

So basically, try a snapshot with firmware 5.5 and see if that's the silver bullet? I've never actually run a snapshot before! Sounds like fun! I'll see if that helps.

If I have a lot of time, I do have another Intel card I could try out. But I do not look forward to taking apart the u820 to get to the other card. It's a somewhat 'intimate' process.

Well, just in case anyone was following this, I tried a snapshot this morning with firmware 5.5 and the result was the same.

iwn0: no link..................sleeping
and
iwn0: not found

So I guess this will be a problem I solve with money and time.
Does anyone know of another half mini pci-e wireless card that is OpenBSD supported? It doesn't have to be N draft, I only have ABG at home.

Thanks!

So it turned out the problem was solved with a little extra time on my end.
As of this post, snapshot has support for Atheros wireless chipsets. I gutted the lifebook, put in the old Atheros card (an HB92 I believe), and all is well. Thanks to jggimi in another thread for the tip.
