Hello:

I've installed SLED12 for my laptop but it seems that SUSE cannot find my wifi internet card.

My laptop is HP pavilion SE 15 and the Wlan is intel dual band wireless ac 3165


here are more informations:

Meanwhile, I found this: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/...rivers/iwlwifi

and I downloaded iwlwifi-3160-ucode-25.228.9.0.tgz from intel website. After that I copy the unzipped

iwlwifi-7265-9.ucode

into /lib/firmware/


restarted the system. But the wifi under my SUSE still doesn't work.

Hi
You need kernel >= 3.17, I see it's supported in openSUSE Leap kernel;


4.1.12-1-default

/sbin/modinfo iwlwifi|grep 3165

Thanks a lot for the comments.

I've installed openSUSE Leap in this laptop before. But It seems that there are coutless bugs in this relase, my screen even flash all the time. Several people have the same problems and it wasn't solved untile now. .....

I am just wondering is there any possibilities to make the wifi work under SLDE 12? I am using SUSE for professional computing, stable is the most important thing for me.

thank you very much

could anybody give some suggestions?

I remembered that in the old days, when this happen we can simply compile and install the driver. After that use command modprobe and in most cases we can activate the wifi module......

Is it possible to do this in SLED 12?

many thanks in advance.

Hi
If the > 3.17 version of the driver compiles and the firmware is added
it should in theory work. Give me a few and will see if can build a kmp
for it.

Hi
Alas, the 3.18 version wouldn't build... If you can raise an SR
requesting a kmp, else can you get to the wifi card and change it to
something supported? I have a HP ProBook with the following card which
should work as it's a 1x1;


/sbin/lspci -nnk|grep -A2 Net
