Cannot connect to internet

Postby Kiamey » 2017-12-05 12:37

I recently installed debian by CD. I am new to linux. I cannot connect to internet. iwconfig brings "no wireless extensions". I don't have access to internet by this device. So I need to add everything by external usb devices. I searched a lot butcould not find the solution.

after instaling firmware package either unplug and reinsert the device,
or modprobe -r then modprobe the driver,
or reboot to let it find the firmware.

confirm it.

Code: Select all
# dmesg | grep -i firmware

ok instead of playing "who can guess what the issue really is", let's gather some proper intel.
op, please provide the info requested here

oh and wifi still doesn't work?
what does networkmanager or iwconfig say?

Have you tried a "hardwire" connection? Run a cat5 cable from the router to the computer, There is also a "firmware" version of Debian that solved my wireless problems. It is at: https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unof ... 4/iso-dvd/
