WiFi Driver Install


Hi Everybody,

I'm having a heck of a time installing "firmware-iwlwifi_0.43_all.deb". I an getting an "failed with unknown error code" This is on a HP 2730p tablet with an Intel wifi card.
Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

OK, how are you actually trying to install the file? Normally you would use:
Code:
$ apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi

Or, if you already downloaded it, and you do not have working connection on that laptop, dpkg -i /path/to/firmware-iwlwifi_0.43_all.deb.

ObsoleteMan,

You don’t say which Linux distribution you are using.

This specific info for the HP 2730p may be of help:

http://www.linlap.com/hp_elitebook_2..._configuration

Also see the Discussion comments.

With wifi problems I have found that it is always best to obtain as much information as possible right from the outset, rather than adopting a piecemeal, drawn out “20 questions” scenario.

Try this:

Wireless Script

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2082305

(developed by Wild Man & Krytarik).

If you can connect to the internet via cable or other means, please open a terminal (Ctrl-Alt-T) and run (copy & paste) the following code into it:

Script Code:

Code:
wget -N -t 5 -T 10 https://dl.dropbox.com/s/qjc87hzk1z5x6z0/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
It will download a script and create a file named wireless-info.txt or wireless-info.tar.gz in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at the time.

NB The MAC address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security.

Paste the contents of the wireless-info.txt or wireless-info.tar.gz file at http://paste.ubuntu.com or alternatively http://pastebin.com/ then post the link here in your question.

If you have no Internet connection on the computer you are trying to troubleshoot, then follow the "No Internet - GUI Method" instructions from the post by varunendra in the Ubuntu forums.

https://github.com/OpenELEC/iwlwifi-firmware

Not the only source for driver firmware, but probably a main one. Otherwise the iwlwifi driver has been in the kernel a while and your distro probably has a version in it's packages. Baring more purist distros like trisquel that intentionally omit such things. The github route is probably better if you have newer hardware that hasn't yet trickled down into your distros versions of things.

In debian that package is firmware-iwlwifi and contains the following files:

Code:
firmware-iwlwifi: /lib/firmware/intel/ibt-hw-37.7.10-fw-1.0.2.3.d.bseq
firmware-iwlwifi: /lib/firmware/intel/ibt-hw-37.7.10-fw-1.80.1.2d.d.bseq

firmware-iwlwifi: /usr/share/doc/firmware-iwlwifi/changelog.gz
firmware-iwlwifi: /usr/share/doc/firmware-iwlwifi/copyright
Getting such a list is fairly easy in debian.

$ apt-file list firmware-iwlwifi

or

$ dpkg -c /var/cache/apt/archives/firmware-iwlwifi_0.43_all.deb

pros and cons for each method. And mostly informative, not really the way to make things work. But possibly a way to tell that what you need isn't there and you need to seek non-distro ways to acquire the things you need. YMMV and my example is debian jessie based (I really should upgrade to stretch soon).

Hello again,

Sorry for any duplications of my reply.

I'm running Debian 8.7 on a HP Elitebook 2730p with an intel 5000 wi-fi card.

Seems like package "firmware-iwlwifi" has some files for that.

$ apt-file find iwlwifi-5000
firmware-iwlwifi: /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-5000-2.ucode
firmware-iwlwifi: /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-5000-5.ucode

Perhaps it's not installed.

iwlwifi

Shadow7
is correct in that it is not installed. I ran both the apt and dpkg and received command not found and no file or directory respectivly. Therein lies the problem....I think.

AwsomeMachine,
apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi returns root@new-hostHpTablet:/home/michael# apt-file list firmware-iwlwifi
bash: apt-file: command not found
root@new-hostHpTablet:/home/michael# apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package firmware-iwlwifi is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'firmware-iwlwifi' has no installation candidate
root@new-hostHpTablet:/home/michael#

I have downloaded from wired connection as well as tried USB transfer, it simple will not install.

That apt-file is not installed by default, you need to install it if you want to use it. What do you mean by it want install for that package that you've downloaded? What exactly did you type? What was output of your command? Just do it and paste both command and output here. If you are in directory where your downloaded deb pacakge is, it should not fail, if you have downloaded right thing and if you have used right command. To make things simple, open your terminal. Then go to your home directory by typing cd. After that, do this:

Code:
 wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-iwlwifi_0.43_all.deb
Next step would be to su to root if you do not use sudo. If you use sudo, put it in front of the following command:

Code:
 dpkg -i firmware-iwlwifi_0.43_all.deb
That should install it. If you did it differently, please reproduce here steps you did. Also, you've got that package has no install candidate because you probably do not have right sources for it, it requires non-free and contrib in sources lists. To get right sources list files for your version of debian, please go here:

https://debgen.simplylinux.ch/ and use it to generate your list. Or, just to be sure that you'll get everything that you might need for it, here it is what you should end up with:


Code:

#                   OFFICIAL DEBIAN REPOS

deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian-security jessie/updates main

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main
You should put that in your /etc/apt/sources.list file, replacing anything that was there before. Use your preferred text editor. You will need root privs, so su to root, or use sudo. After you put that in your sources.lists, if you have working connection you can install that package with apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi, there will be no need for wget and dpkg.

Hi Everybody,

I finally got it working, I'm not exactly sure what I did as I tried so many things, but it's working. I want to thank all of you for your time and effort.

Mike
