pciconf -lv
outputs this
Code:
none0@pci0:0:12:0:      class=0x028000 card=0x02a48086 chip=0x31dc8086 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    class      = network
/boot/loader.conf
Code:
# intel nuc(my PC) wifi
if_ath_load="YES"
if_wi_load="YES"
if_iwm_load="YES"
iwm7265fw_load="YES"

wlan_wep_load="YES"
wlan_ccmp_load="YES"
wlan_tkip_load="YES"


I don't find the right driver I need to install, which supports this wifi device.
Please help to address this problem

I would try "iwmfw_load=YES" instead of iwm7265fw_load, as this loads all firmware modules. There is also another intel Wireless driver iwn(). Maybe try that one.

Thanks for the suggestion. But the problem has not solved yet.
The system does not recognises iwmfw
Code:
$ sudo kldload iwmfw
kldload: can't load iwmfw: No such file or directory
What is related to iwn I got confused after I did this
Code:
$ sudo kldload iwn
kldload: can't load iwn: module already loaded or in kernel
and
Code:
$ sudo kldload if_iwn
kldload: an error occurred while loading module if_iwn. Please check dmesg(8) for more details.

$dmesg

interface iwn.1 already present in the KLD 'kernel'!
linker_load_file: /boot/kernel/if_iwn.ko - unsupported file type

I suspect I need additional packages to download and install it on the system
