    Question (New User) Recently installed a Wi-Fi card, not detecting wireless networks?

    Hey there! I've been having issues trying to get my device to connect to Wi-Fi ever since I installed an internal Wi-Fi card in it.

    So I'm using an Intel NUC D34010WYK mini PC running ubuntu 16.04 LTS and the card I recently put in is an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 + Bluetooth. As of right now, it's acting like before when no card was installed, and unable to connect to any network unless I use an Ethernet cable.

    Let's have a look at some diagnostics. Please open a terminal and run and then post:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe iwlwifi && dmesg | grep iwl
    rfkill list all
    iwconfig
    PS - I love love love my NUC!

    Hi

    There is some Intel info

    https://www.intel.com/content/www/us...000005511.html

    Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260, 4.2+ iwlwifi-7260-ucode-25.30.14.0.tgz
    Intel® Dual Band Wireless-N 7260, 4.2+


    Intel® Wireless-N 7260, 4.1+
    Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 for Desktop 4.1+ iwlwifi-7260-ucode-25.30.13.0.tgz

    and drivers potentially exist. So there is hope.
    CONDITION: Something loose in cockpit.

    SOLUTION: Something tightened in cockpit.

    The driver iwlwifi has been in-kernel for many years. As well, the needed firmware has been in the package linux-firmware for many years. In fact, the current version is the -17 firmware; the -13 and -14 you link are not needed.

    From my machine:
    Code:
    [    3.236424] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: loaded firmware version 17.459231.0 op_mode iwlmvm
    [    3.269296] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: Detected Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 7260, REV=0x144
    And:
    Code:
    $ ls /lib/firmware | grep 7260
    iwlwifi-7260-10.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-12.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-13.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-16.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-17.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-18.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-19.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-20.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-21.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-7.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-8.ucode
    iwlwifi-7260-9.ucode
    If the wireless is not recognized and started automagically, I highly doubt the firmware files are missing or at fault.

    My NUC doesn't have wireless, so I can't tell for sure, but I'd suggest that @lightbeard have a look around the Visual BIOS to be certain that there are no settings that enable/disable particular PCI slots and especially wireless.
