Hello. I installed Ubuntu on my laptop HP ProBook, but I can't connect to Ubiquity AP 6 Lite. I checked that driver for wi-fi adapter recognized not correct, see output data:

 

sudo lshw -C network

 

*-network

       resources: iomemory:600-5ff irq:16 memory:600324c000-600324ffff
 

I tried:

sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade but my Ubuntu has actual version and do not have fresh updates.

 

How to update or actualize driver?

Hello,  


Thank you for posting on the Intel communities. 


In this case, it is important for you to know that the Linux drivers are part of the upstream Linux* kernel. They're available through the regular channels, distributions, or the Linux* kernel archives. We support the use of the drivers only in the kernel version the driver was a part of. Please refer to the table by this link for a list of supported devices by the iwlwifi driver.


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


For installing this driver, please follow the next 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.


Regards,
