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 Linux kernel driver supports several Intel wireless LAN adapters:

  • Intel Wireless WiFi 5100AGN, 5300AGN, and 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

  • Intel 7260 WiFi Adapter

  • Intel 7265 WiFi Adapter

  • Intel 3160 WiFi Adapter

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 8 "Jessie"

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

    # Debian 8 "Jessie"
    deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ jessie 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 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.

Supported Devices

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