[SOLVED] Debian 9 cannot detect WIFI on HP Pavillion 15

Postby 4joeyirosh1 » 2018-02-03 13:40

Hi!I just bought a HP Pavillion 15 Notebook laptop and installed Debian 9 Stretch.I am new to Debian.

Unfortunately from my gnome desktop I cannot find the wifi icon on the top right corner but I can see bluetooth.I am sure the laptop came with Wifi and I am at a loss as to why its not visible.

If I run the lspci command as below I get the following output.I cannot see any wifi entry

Maybe I thought its because I havent installed firmware-iwlwifi_20161130-3_all.deb.Since I am not connected to the internet then I cannot install the package from link below when one adds the entry to /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian stretch main non-free

I downloaded the firmware-iwlwifi_20161130-3_all.deb manually to install it but I get errors below.

# apt install firmware-iwlwifi_20161130-3_all.deb

E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'firmware-iwlwifi_20161130-3_all.deb'

Kindly assist.
