Wifi Drivers Dell Inspiron Intel 3165 (rev 79) [solved]

Postby 1885 » 2017-10-22 03:54

I just got a Dell Inspiron 5000 . I'm doing a Duel boot with Debian 9 (hopefully)
I'm using the debian-live-9.2.0-amd64-xfce.iso on a usb to install wirelessly.
Stretch is using : kernel : Linux 4.9
The install is asking for iwlwifi-7265D-26.ucode to iwlwifi-7265D-17.ucode
I tried iwlwifi-7265D-17.ucode iwlwifi-7265D-21.ucode iwlwifi-7265D-22.ucode during the install with no luck.

I was able to get wireless to work with the Gentoo System Rescue USB (Linux sysresccd 4.9.24-std500-amd64).
That kernel uses drivers less than iwlwifi-7265D-17.ucode

The Wifi is a:
Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 3165 (rev 79)

Any ideas?

Thank you for the response. I've seen these files. The installation asks for
" iwlwifi-7265D-26.ucode to iwlwifi-7265D-17.ucode"

I'm going to install with net install ethernet then hope for the best with wifi.

In the future there are "unofficial" cd's with firmware: CD/DVD with firmware. Not all firmware, some vendors do not allow redistribution of firmware.

Another option is to use an ethernet cable and install the firmware Debian wiki iwl wifi.
