    Gen2 iwlwifi-7260 wifi driver

      Hello,

       

      [Using the IoT image for Galileo Gen2]

       

      I am running into a number of issues with this WiFi module. I can see it in the lspci call:

       

      01 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Device 0958
      02 00:14.0 SD Host controller: Intel Corporation Device 08a7 (rev 10)
      03 00:14.1 Serial controller: Intel Corporation Device 0936 (rev 10)
      04 00:14.2 USB controller: Intel Corporation Device 0939 (rev 10)
      05 00:14.3 USB controller: Intel Corporation Device 0939 (rev 10)
      06 00:14.4 USB controller: Intel Corporation Device 093a (rev 10)
      07 00:14.5 Serial controller: Intel Corporation Device 0936 (rev 10)
      08 00:14.6 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Device 0937 (rev 10)
      09 00:14.7 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Device 0937 (rev 10)
      10 00:15.0 Serial bus controller [0c80]: Intel Corporation Device 0935 (rev 10)
      11 00:15.1 Serial bus controller [0c80]: Intel Corporation Device 0935 (rev 10)
      12 00:15.2 Serial bus controller [0c80]: Intel Corporation Device 0934 (rev 10)
      13 00:17.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 11c3
      14 00:17.1 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Device 11c4
      15 00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation Device 095e
      16 01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 (rev 73)
      
      
      

       

      But if I do iwconfig:

       

      lo        no wireless extensions.
      2
      3 enp0s20f6  no wireless extensions.
      
      

       

      Assuming that it's driver is not setup I cloned the repo on http://wireless.kernel.org/ and placed the 7260 driver in /lib/firmware

       

      Unfortunately after restart nothing appears to have changed. What am I doing wrong here?

       

      Here is ifconfig if it helps:
