Description Graham Perrin 2021-07-23 18:47:52 UTC
These four pages: 

<https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.0R/hardware/#wlan>
<https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.1R/hardware/#wlan>
<https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.2R/hardware/#wlan>
<https://www.freebsd.org/releases/13.0R/hardware/#wlan>

– make the following statement: 


[i386, amd64] Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 3160/7260/7265 IEEE 802.11ac network adapters (iwn(4) driver)


<https://forums.FreeBSD.org/threads/81442/post-524125>: 

> … must be a typo.

The manual page for iwn(4) makes no mention of 7260. 

The manual page for iwm(4) does mention 7260.

At a glance, <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/11.4R/hardware/#wlan> is probably OK.
