Intel dual band wireless-n 7260



Intel dual band wireless-n 7260 for testing the wifi and Bluetooth.

I am new to wifi and buletooth environment I am unable to detect the wireless card in the setup

My System Environment:

Bayley bay Board Mini PCIe slot - Intel dual band wireless-n 7260

ubuntu 12.4

Linux 3.8 kernel version


1. Insterted the Intel dual band wireless-n 7260 in the Mini PCIe slot in the bayley bay board.

2. Checked for the Intel dual band wireless-n 7260 PCIe devices through "lspci" command - not detected

3. But i am able list the device in the " lsusb"

I have the following queries

Why the wireless-n 7260 will not list in the PCIe tree ?

I need the sequence of detecting/enumaration for this card and how to verify my card is present or not?

Is there linux driver and any uboot code support for this card in the bayley bay board?

Please help me out in this issue

Thanks in advance

Hi vaishali, in regards of Linux* I recommend you visiting the support section of the links below:

Thanks for the quick response......

Before going to the driver just want to know the bus enumeration process for the wireless card(PCIe half mini card).

How it will detect the WIFI and Bluetooth -> PCIe or USB

In the baytrail (bayley bay platform) the card is detected only by USB(with 2 interfaces) but in the schematic of the bayley bay both the signals(PCIe and USB) are connected then how come only USB can detect the card.

$lsusb -t

/: Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, class="root_hub", Driver=xhci_hcd/1p, 5000M

/: Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, class="root_hub", Driver=xhci_hcd/6p, 480M

|__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 0, class="Human" Interface Device, Driver=usbhid, 1.5M

|__ Port 2: Dev 3, If 0, class="Mass" Storage, Driver=usb-storage, 480M

|__ Port 3: Dev 4, If 0, class="Wireless", Driver=, 12M

|__ Port 3: Dev 4, If 1, class="Wireless", Driver=, 12M

|__ Port 6: Dev 5, If 0, class="Hub", Driver=hub/3p, 480M

|__ Port 1: Dev 6, If 0, class="Mass" Storage, Driver=usb-storage, 480M

In the PCIe tree it is not detected.Can please calrify me on this


Just i want to know before loading the firmware ucode/driver the card should be listed in the "lspci" .... is my understanding is correct?
