probably you are referring to 6205 rather than 6025 as I'm not aware of N-6025?
According to http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/CS-034398.htm it should be supported with iwlwifi for quite a while. Not sure whether your Linux image would support. Check "modinfo iwlwifi" "modprobe iwlwifi".
The Intel(R) IoT developer kit SD card image supports this card - I think I saw it running with this card already
You can create a bootable SD card using this link and try testing your card following the instructions from IoT - Using the Integrated Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth card | Intel® Developer Zone

For any Linux, including our Yocto version, the firmware for a particular wifi card is stored in a specific location, typically /lib/firmware. If ypu check that directory you will see what cards are already supported. Its a simple matter to add support for a new card by adding the new firmware to that directory. This firmware is a binary image that is independent of the host OS, ie the same firmware is loaded whether the card is installed in Galileo board, or in a laptop running windows. Most wifi cards are in fact built using an embedded ARM processor.
More info can be found at https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi including the latest firmware images.
In addition to the firmware you do need a "front end" that allows you to specify SSID, and other features. For Galileo we have included connman as part of the IOTdevkit SD image.
