Intel 7260 dual band firmware install on debian based linux

Hello,

i downloaded iwlwifi-7260_14.ucode to /lib/firmware, but then i have no idea on how to load this firmware into the kernel, it is said on the README file to look into the documentation, but i can't figure out where to find it, i know the manpages, but, if someone could make me get it faster than looking up to the manpages and linux documentation maybe ?

Hello @Alfredovitch

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.

 

For Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260, you can download the proper firmware from the following link*:

https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi

 

Regarding how to install the firmware after the right version is downloaded, please follow these instructions:

  1. Copy the files into the distribution-specific firmware directory, /lib/firmware.
  2. If the directory doesn't work, refer to your distribution documentation.
  3. If you configure the kernel yourself, make sure firmware loading is enabled.

 

We support the use of the drivers only in the kernel version the driver was a part of. For more information, please refer to Linux* Support for Intel® Wireless Adapters: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005511/network-and-i-o/wireless.html
