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!

The iwm driver currently only provides support for:

Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 3160
Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 3165
Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 3168
Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260
Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7265
Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 8260

Thanks trev

Do you know if iwm will be updated in FreeBSD 13 release?

Regards.

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.

Same here.
I removed arch and installed freeBSD and now it's not detecting my wifi driver so I am unable to use wifi.
All I can do is use ethernet connection.
Maybe I will have to wait some more years.

Older thread, but since it has been resurrected, it bears mentioning that drivers for the AC 9560 have been added for 13-CURRENT

Sorry if I add my ot comment here. But tomorrow I'm going to have a new WiFi, I bought intel 9260. I read that on 13-current there is support. So do I install this version or can I install version 12?

how exaclty does someone get a install img of 13-CURRENT to install to have this driver?
I do not care if it is "unstable" release.


answered my own question ( I think, I'll know for sure when I get it and try it)

if you just want to use iwm for ac92xx series , you can checkout code from svm.freebsd.org , compile it and install it. it work fine for my ac9260

now you tell me.. lol
the last I read was I'd have to recompile the kernel and well I opt to install 13 current and it is like sooo slow downloading and I am at the got xorg, xfce and a few apps which took 7 hours, and then I tried doing the video for AMD Ryzen 5 2500U Radeon Vega 8. where adding kld_list=amdgpu and dbus_enable=yes and got no x so I figured I'd need to compile from source and portsnap is taking an 1hr30min to download that and its telling me I got 28 mins left as of this posting. so now to reinstall or what? I'd be perfectly happy with 12.1 and wifi and amdgpu working. Which means I got a download and burn it to a usb stick and start over. lol

back

svm.freebsd.org server not found.

That is a typo. He means svn.freebsd.org
What you really need to download is a little bit of FreeBSD -CURRENT.
Notibly this directory /usr/src/sys/dev/iwm
There may be other dependancies found in the iwm drivers Makefile that you need to compile as well.
Maybe Raffeale would be kind enough to share his method to compile only this particular driver.

thanks, I was just getting ready to look into this issue in how do I get this. I got 13 up and running and xfce4 up, but no mouse or keyboard in there. usb timeout on cli ... let me go and hopefully get that and put 21.1 in this laptop.
just looked, how to i figure out the sequence for compiling all of them files.

ugg.. if I could get mouse and keyboard working in xfce4 on 13.0 I'd be there.

look this thread
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=227044
https://www.intel.com/content/www/u...5511/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking.html
I seen the bug report but could not find a like to find what they were talking about. that other link looks nice thanks

how do I get to know the equivalent of the Linux kernel 4.14+ and or is this what they were using in there patching they were talking about in that bug report.
It is late here and I'm about to go to bed so I'm just asking before looking into this further.

thanks again!
