I bought an Intel AC 8265NGW NGFF wifi card with a mpcie converter. After I booted R2 with the latest image (2017-09-04), the wifi card is not detected. Below is the output of the lspci command,
`pi@bpi-iot-ros-ai:~$ lspci -v

I did some search and realised that the intel wifi card needs the iwlwifi kernel module. But the module is not loaded and I can’t find the module on the system at all. The firmware seems to be available under /lib/firmware directory.
First of all, not sure if mpcie works or not? Second, can the card be supported on R2?
