Go to this page and scroll to the bottom and where it says "all" under architecture click on all. It will direct you to a page of mirrors. Download that .deb package from one of those mirrors.
https://packages.debian.org/jessie/k...rmware-iwlwifi

Than try to install that .deb package as root.

If you are using a Windows machine to download the .deb firmware put the .deb pkg on a usb flash drive. Than boot into your Debian install and cut and paste that .deb file on the usb flash drive into your Downloads directory on your Debian system.

Than try to install that .deb package as root.

Thumbs up

Thank you, Ztcoracat!!!!!! That did the trick. The "WinDoze way" of extracting all the individual files was the wrong thing to do.

I downloaded firmware-iwlwifi_0.43_all.deb again. I copied it to the USB drive and ran dpkg as root. After installing and rebooting, I was able to connect to the local network. Then I loaded Firefox and installed the Lastpass extension - now I have access to ALL my web sites.
