Intel Wireless WiFi Link, Wireless-N, Advanced-N, Ultimate-N devices

This page describes how to enable support for Intel 802.11n devices on Debian systems.

The iwlwifi module (iwlagn prior to Linux 3.2) is produced by the iwlwifi Linux kernel driver, which supports several Intel wireless LAN adapters:

  • Intel Wireless WiFi 4965AGN

  • Intel Wireless WiFi 5100AGN, 5300AGN, 5350AGN

  • Intel Wireless WiFi 5150AGN

  • Intel WiFi Link 1000BGN

  • Intel 6000 Series WiFi Adapters (6200AGN and 6300AGN)

  • Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6250AGN Adapter

  • Intel 6005 Series WiFi Adapters

  • Intel 6030 Series WiFi Adapters

  • Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6150BGN 2 Adapter

  • Intel 100 Series WiFi Adapters (100BGN and 130BGN)

  • Intel 2000 Series WiFi Adapters

Non-free firmware is required, which can be provided by installing the firmware-iwlwifi package.

{i} For support of Intel 3945ABG/BG and 4965AGN devices, see iwlegacy.

Installation

Debian 7 "Wheezy"

  1. Add a "non-free" component to /etc/apt/sources.list, for example:

    # Debian 7 "Wheezy"
    deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
  2. Update the list of available packages and install the firmware-iwlwifi package:

    # apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi
  3. As the iwlwifi module is automatically loaded for supported devices, reinsert this module to access installed firmware:

    # modprobe -r iwlwifi ; modprobe iwlwifi
  4. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.

Debian 6.0 "Squeeze"

  1. Add a "non-free" component to /etc/apt/sources.list, for example:

    # Debian 6.0 "Squeeze"
    deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
  2. Update the list of available packages and install the firmware-iwlwifi package:

    # apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi
  3. As the iwlagn module is automatically loaded for supported devices, reinsert this module to access installed firmware:

    # modprobe -r iwlagn ; modprobe iwlagn
  4. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.

Supported Devices

The page HowToIdentifyADevice/PCI explains how to identify a PCI device.
