Hi, I am new to Debian.
I'm trying to use the wifi connection.

All I know are the following commands:
lspci | grep Network
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Device 24fd (rev 78)

iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
enp4s0 no wireless extensions.


but now I'm stuck:(
Thanks for helping

You will propably need firmware-iwlwifi (non-free) package: h-node.org: wifi cards: Intel Corporation Device (rev 78)

You have to edit /etc/apt/sources.list (as root, or sudo), and add non-free, example:
Code: Select all
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster main non-free contrib


I have also contrib enabled.

After editing sources.list, do (stiil as root, or sudo if configured)
Code: Select all
#apt update
OR
Code: Select all
sudo apt update


Then you can install firmware-iwlwifi, as any package, for example
Code: Select all
sudo apt install firmware-iwlwifi

Does the machine have a wired connection to the Net? If not, you can edit sources until your keyboard is worn out and it won't make any difference.

If you don't have a wired connection, can you tether a phone to it and get Net access that way?

I have a wired connection. That works.
I did all you wrote above:
firmware-iwlwifi is already the newest version (20190114-1).

But still the result of iwconfig is as follow:
enp4s0 no wireless extensions.
lo no wireless extensions.
