I'm tying to sniff packets with an Intel AC7260 card with Debian Jessie. It works, but I cannot change channels. When I enter:

iw wlan0 set channel XXX

the device will hang and I need to reboot it.

Any suggestions?

I came up with a fix. It turns out the latest firmware caused a problem. I rolled it back to iwlwifi-7260-ucode- and it works now.
