Getting WiFi to work on a Thinkpad L440 with a Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 rev 6


Hello!

I've been trying to get my WiFi working for the last 2 days. I have confirmed that this works under Linux because it is fully functioning under Arch linux and Ubuntu. I am trying to get this to work in Crunchbang (yes I have posted for help on their forums to, without succes). I have updated my kernel to 3.14.17 and I am using the Jessie release of debian. So far:

Computer does see device
Code:
martijn@plebian:~$ lspci
2:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 (rev 6b)
Module isn't loaded on startup, and when loaded doesn't load the right firmware
Code:
martijn@plebian:~$ modinfo iwlwifi

The firmware for the 7260 appears to be missing. Get it from here, and install to /lib/firmware

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi

Hope that helps.

Update Kernel

Steps:
1. Update the kernel newer than 3.18.*
2. Go to "Additional Drivers"
3. Install the driver requirement
