I'm looking for a replacemnt for my 802.11g WiFi PCIe adaptor card and want to
replace it with an 802.11ac adaptor.

Since I made very bad experiences with CURRENT and support of modest modern 
(Haswell CPU/Intel  7260 DualBand WiFi NIC), I'd like to ask here first.

I found this PCIe adaptor card attractive:

GigaByte Gigabyte GC-WB867D-I

I can not find ad hoc the WLAN chip used on that specific card, but maybe 
someone has
experiences with that litte board.
FreeBSD doensn't support 802.11ac, yet.
I'm bitter aware of that. This OS doesn't support the chipsets, even if they 
provide also

We have at our department now a bunch of Lenovo hardware, with Intels 7260 
chipset. The
laptops are now runninmg Ubuntu 14.0X something which obviously supports the 
WiFi chip.
I'm the last man standing with FreeBSD on my private Lenovo :-(

This is a serious problem. I'm about ready to install Linux on my laptop as well just to get a usable system. Some kind of funding directed to a willing developer would be hugely valuable for the usability of the operating system on recent hardware. This is probably more important even than Haswell graphics since without a driver, Haswell is merely slow, whereas networking is completely broken.
