The following component is being detected by Linux:

It _could_ be supported by the "iwm" driver, at least model 3160
is definitely on the list.

     The iwm driver provides support for:

	   Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 3160	<--- maybe?
	   Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 3165
	   Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260
	   Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7265
	   Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 8260


     This driver requires the firmware built with the iwmfw module to work.

See "man 4 iwm" for details.
