Hi carlossp

According to this page
https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/use ... rs/iwlwifi
the driver is included since kernel 4.1 but you need a firmware file
https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/_media ... 0.13.0.tgz
or
https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/_media ... 2414.0.tgz
( I'm not 100% sure which one)
Unpack the archive and copy the firmware file into /lib/firmware > reboot.
Hopefully the wifi does work then.

Hi Donald,

Thank you for your answer.
I agree that this is the way but it didn't work with the links you gave to me.
Maybe I have to get the correct version of the firmware.

When I type modinfo iwlwifi | grep 800 it show me: iwlwifi-8000C--26.ucode that I think is the firmware I need.

Thanks again.

Hi Ed,

Below is the result of the command modinfo iwlwifi | grep wifi
But I have already the solution.
I just copied the file iwlwifi-8000C-26.ucode to /lib/firmware and now the wifi network is working.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Donald,

Fantastic!! I just copied the file iwlwifi-8000C-26.ucode from the link you said to /lib/firmware and now the network card is detected and the wifi is working perfectly.

Thank you very much for your good help.
