Hi there!

Does anybody knows what driver or commands should I do to have support for a WLAN card Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 9560. Ethernet (LAN) card is detected and works fine so I can do any upgrade or download any package, the problem is only with the WiFi card.

Thanks in advance!

There is a general workaround to solve this kind of issue. I used it successfully for my own wifi card which is not yet supported by its driver despite the intense work of the developper. I will post soon the scheme of my "home-made" router that use such a trick.

The idea is simple: does Linux have a functioning driver? Probably yes. So you can create a virtual machine (bhyve) with Debian for instance and passthru the wifi device to it. Inside Debian, you bridge the wifi interface to the wired interface. The wired interface has to be passed to Debian as a tap device.

It needs more explanations I suppose, but here are the main lines of the idea.
