Does anyone know about the possibility of using Wireless 8260 ?
I initially addressed this issue to free...@intel.com, but it seems no
one is home. It is difficult to assume that such a huge and rich
company like Intel@ can not keep at least one FreeBSD driver developer
and all the work is done by community (after spending the money to
purchase equipment ;-)

Subject: Wireless 8260 driver for FreeBSD
To: free...@intel.com


I've  buy http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/nuc/nuc-kit-nuc6i5syk.html
harware and wish to use this as development desktop platform on my
office with FreeBSD OS (at the moment i setup FreeBSD 12-CURRENT

With a big community/developers help via FreeBSD maillist I was able
successfull to make of the graphics subsystem ( DRM 4.7 from
dev-branch: https://github.com/FreeBSDDesktop/freebsd-base-graphics/wiki

Looks like all other hardware compatible with FreeBSD 12 except
wirelless devices. I can find any information about Wireless 8260 and

On Intel.com site, i see official FreeBSD ethernet drivers ( em ), but
can't find any drivers for wireless. Some people indicated to iwn


But it not works for me.

My pciconf -vl output from FreeBSD NUC 6i5syk:

none5@pci0:1:0:0:       class=0x028000 card=0x90108086 chip=0x24f38086
rev=0x3a hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = 'Wireless 8260'
    class      = network

Where I can find the driver if it exists? Or is there some kind of
timeline when you plan to upgrade iwn for 8260 ?
