Wifi on Huawei Matebook D ?

Postby Falquiero » 2019-01-06 19:04

Hello there.

I'm struggling setting up my wi-fi on this new laptop.

Code: Select all
root@debian:/home/tdh# lspci -nnk | grep -i network -A 2

       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever


I installed Debian with the firmware-9.6.0-amd64-DVD-1iso and can't find it in this list http://linux-wless.passys.nl/query_part ... name=Intel ...

I can't find a .deb package with [8086:24fd] firmware. I tried to install every single firmware coming with the special debian iso embedding many firmwares. None of them worked.

What can I do ? (this pc does not have an ethernet port either)

Thanks !

Wikidevi says that should be covered from kernel 4.5 onwards:

https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Intel_Dual_Ba ... 5_(8265NGW)

Perhaps the ID is wrong though, try
Code: Select all
# update-pciids

then run `lspci -nn` again and see if the result is different.

EDIT: d'oh! That won't work, obviously :D

Perhaps try an Arch Linux ISO image and see if the ID is different there?

Thanks for your response.

It did not change as you said. Will try arch.

According to this topic : https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=245736

I need 4.8 or 4.10 Linux kernel (while with stretch I have 4.9). What would be the easiest way to get this kernel on a PC without internet access ?

Download the .deb for the backported kernel on another machine then transfer it across and use gdebi to install it.

But that means that they'll have to install gdebi and its dependencies first without a Net connection, anyway!

Even after that, gdebi won't pull in any missing dependencies without a Net connection, but I don't think that kernel has any, so "dpkg -i <deb>" will probably work. If not, I know the Liquorix kernel linux-image package will.

I would double check first just to make sure that firmware-iwlwifi is installed,though.
Code: Select all
apt policy firmware-iwlwifi


Edit: there is a note on the PCI ID database page that there is also an Intel 8275 chip that has the same ID. https://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/8086/24fd

Thank you all.

All I had to do was to install this package I transfered via usb stick :

http://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/main/ ... _amd64.deb

Code: Select all
# dpkg -i x.deb
# reboot


Worked like a charm after reboot. Thank you !

Well, now we know that the 4.9 kernel doesn't support it!

There's also a method of running
Code: Select all
modinfo iwlwifi
as sysadmin and looking for your PCI ID [8086:24fd] in the list of supported devices, but the output might look like a lot of technobabble to a beginner. Can you find yours now in the output? It's there, and should be missing for the 4.9 kernel.

Install the backported kernel metapackage to ensure that the version is kept up-to-date:
Code: Select all
# apt install linux-image-amd64/stretch-backports
