With the 7.99.67 snapshot I’m seeing the message “iwm0: fatal firmware error” occasionally on boot.  There is no other information on this that I can find and obviously at that point the network device isn’t usable.  A reboot almost always seems to clear it up.  Never saw this issue on earlier versions of -current, so I’m assuming it’s something that crept in.

Could you enable debug output and send logs?
