It's 2017, iwm(4) is working on FreeBSD, Now will the Intel AC 7260 work?


  • I saw a REALLY old post, saying it would be years before it's supported. I see iwm(4) in FreeBSD but is it as simple as adding iwm7260fw_load="YES" or not in pfSense?

    I am not sure if the underlying FreeBSD is whole or has been gutted.

    I get the whole "Just use a frickin' Access Point MAN!" but I was getting these Jetway boxes and I can only get the wireless ones because Jetway doesn't stock the non wireless ones and it would be nice if it has some wireless capability.


  • If you want to use it as an AP, it's not going to work.
    From the man page, no mention of hostap
    iwm supports station mode operation.
