Linux, Centrino Wireless - N 1000 BGN/ How do I get this working on a laptop running Yakaty Yak. (Ubuntu latest)?

I am trying to get the WiFi on my brothers HP pavilion laptop to work. The crappy Windows OS was replaced with Kubuntu Yakaty Yak. I had the same problem on my lap top but the firmware I added to fix mine didn't work on his. Not surprised since his is a different version. The firmware did enable it to see the access point, but it still can't connect. Maybe there is a different firmware package that he needs. Please give me the name, so I can tell APT to install it. It's probably in the distro's repos. I just need the package name please.

Hello steve7233,



We understand you are having some issues when installing the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1000 in Linux. Please be aware that for drivers and other issues with Linux, you may check the Linux Community page, or dedicated forums for this OS.


Also, we would like to mention that the N 1000 has reached End of Interactive Support, as noted in the document: Customer Support Options for Discontinued Intel® Wireless Products.
