NUC6CAYH Wifi not working [SOLVED]

Postby kendew » 2017-08-25 20:16

This is part two of things not working for me with Debian Stretch install on an NUC6CAYH. I have WICD installed but cannot get it to find any Wifi stations, of which there are plenty. I installed what I thought was relevant firmware, iwlwifi and other Intel related. Some facts:
Code: Select all
uname -a
Linux Ao 4.9.0-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.30-2+deb9u3 (2017-08-06) x86_64 GNU/Linux


Relevant output from lspci:
Code: Select all
01:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTS5229 PCI Express Card Reader (rev 01)
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Device 24fb (rev 10)
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 15)


This should be easy. Why am I not getting it?
Thanks for anything.

Thanks for reply.
Using dmesg on output of
Code: Select all
lspci -nn | grep Network

the following might be relevant.

Though I installed iwlwifi by way of debian repository I still don:t see these particular files in /lib/firmware . Also, curiously where other firmware was filed neatly in suitable directories, the iwlwifi files were just scattered everywhere.
To be honest, Debian hasn:t been the main distro I:ve worked with and there:s a lot I don:t understand, but it seems I would need those files.
The problem is, where to get them? The files up to 3168-22.ucode were in /lib/firmware.

i bet it's because you haven't told wicd yet what your wireless interface is in its settings. It's pretty dumb in that way. This is a very common issue. Try as sysadmin:

Code: Select all
ifconfig -a


to see your interfaces.
