I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T440 which I was looking to install FreeBSD on. The laptop has an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 chip which doesn’t seem to be supported (yet).
On my travels, researching whether I might need to install an available driver or some such thing, I've come across some terms which I presume are acronyms:
My presumption is that iw stands for something like Intel Wireless? Is that correct and what is the letter at the end?
I thought perhaps it had something to do with wireless standards, like 802.11a/b/c/n/ac/etc. but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Neither does it seem to be the case that iwa is older than iwn as I’ve found someone working on the 7260 under a git repo titled iwa and have found a man page for iwn which doesn’t mention the 7260, but does mention older models (I think).
