Intel Wireless 7265 AC - Porteus v3.2

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Intel Wireless 7265 AC - Porteus v3.2

Post#1 by kalo86 » 19 Nov 2016, 15:06

Hello dear Community,

I'm running a test on my laptop (HP Spectre x360) and I noticed that my Intel WiFi card is not detected.
The output of "iwconfig" says that there is not any wireless device.
Is there a way to add the Intel modules on the new ISOs?

Thanks!

kalo86, thanks for log.
  • download and activate this module firmwareiwlwifi0.43all.xzm (better, copy this module to /mnt/sdb1/porteus/modules)
  • open terminal and run these commands:

    Code: Select all

    su
    toor
    modprobe -r iwlwifi
    modprobe iwlwifi
    or

    Code: Select all

    reboot
  • try to configure your wireless interface.

Nothing, I choosed the option 1 (copy the module on the porteus/modules folder and power on the laptop to be sure).
This is the screenshot:

I think there is a missing driver on the kernel.
Thanks for the support!

Hi
7260 and 7265 support

7260 and 7265 will not be supported by the newest firmware versions:
the last firmware that was released for these devices is -17.ucode.
Bug fixes will be ported to -17.ucode.
Note that 7265D can run later firmware versions. In order to determine
if your 7265 device is a 'D' version, you can check the dmesg output:

Detected Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 7265, REV=0x210

The revision number of a 7265D device is 0x210, if you see any other number,
you have a 7265 device.

Firmware files:
kernel 4.3+
https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/_media ... 2414.0.tgz

Another package:
http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/ ... arch-1.txz
extract the relevant files and copy them into /lib/firmware
good luck.. :wink:

Hello guys!
Thanks for the answers, anyway I noticed on the output of "dmesg" command that the system tried to locate the missing firmware.
For this reason I prepared two different modules (one for 7265 and the second for the 7265D) and with two tests I determined that my wifi card is the 7265D.

These are the links to download the modules:

7265: https://mega.nz/#!MpJUxbgZ!GHfyGbnf5MIL ... Ks3NVPPnUo
7265D: https://mega.nz/#!p4pyFLrS!ylpwN0mhE2mK ... VohWzBd1is

Thank you very much!

So my module also should do the job. This contains both versions of firmware for 7265 and 7265D.
Where did you find that firmware files? They seem to be few months newer than mine. I downloaded the files direct from Intel website.

Did you create the modules yourself and how? My selfmade ones look a little different in internal file structure.

Hi,
I made the modules in this way:

1. Download the ucode files from Intel website;
2. Create a folder on Desktop (for example) with any name: "7265";
3. Create this path inside: lib/firmware
4. Copy the firmware file inside the path: 7265/lib/firmware;
5. Open a terminal on the Desktop and send the command: dir2xzm 7265 Intel_Wireless_7265.xzm
6. Done.

The same procedure can be done for the 7265D firmware if you want to split the modules like me (I usually want a lean linux distribution and the modularity of Porteus has a big value if you want to add/remove stuff).
If you want a unique module, on point 4. you can copy both firmware files on the same path.
Since in my laptop I don't need the 7265 firmware, then I use only the 7265D module.

Thanks!
