Installing on a different Computer

Postby Vilvasic » 2019-03-25 17:53

I installed linux on a different computer because I wasn't able to connect to the internet on my other conputer. I already installed it once on my other computer but I'm running to the internet problems again, I'm unable to connect and thus I'm forced to download debian minimal. I'm in the middle of an installation now and it says I'm missing the following firmware iwlwifi-7265D-26.ucode,iwlwifi-7265D-25.ucode,iwlwifi-7265D-24.ucode,iwlwifi-7265D-23.ucode,iwlwifi-7265D-22.ucode .
It also said "Your network is probably not using the DHCP protocol. Alternativaly, the DHCP server may be slow or some network hardware is not working properly.". What do I do in this case? I'm a noob and dealing with debian minimal is difficult for me.

Or use an unofficial non-free Debian ISO image instead, a search engine will find them for you.

Assign the IP address, netmask & gateway (default route) manually.

Best to always do an install while connected by an ethernet cable so you can later connect and download the needed packages to get all hardware working.
