Code: Select all
Edited source list
Added "deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free"

Then i used

But no go on this, drivers i need added.

iwlwifi-5000-4.ucode

If you have set up root password:

Code: Select all
su-
modprobe iwlwifi


If you have sudo enabled:
Code: Select all
sudo modprobe iwlwifi


Or just reboot the laptop. Make sure NetworkManager is installed (it should be on any DE install).

Just add firmware-iwlwifi and reboot.

https://wiki.debian.org/iwlwifi

In short, add non-free repo and then install firmware-iwlwifi package.

After that, just reboot the laptop.

^Have you updated the sources list after you added it?
Code: Select all
apt update


Have you read the wiki pages me and Garry have directed you to?

EDIT:
Try swapping
Code: Select all
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free

with
Code: Select all
deb  http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main contrib non-free

Then run:
Code: Select all
apt update
as root.
There might be some problems with repo mirrors.
