If that doesn’t work, or you need newer firmware, read on.? Please keep that in mind. Wi-Fi heavily relies on radio frequencies, and those are subject to interference. Check if the correct kernel is loaded. Our devices support monitor mode.

The steps for installing and configuring this are very distribution specific and the tools differ, but distributions have this enabled. After rebuilding the kernel and rebooting with this kernel, the selected options can be verified as follows:. The driver supports In order to determine if your device is a ‘D’ version, you can check the iwl965 output:. The revision number inyel a D device is 0x, if you see any other number, you have a device. For general questions about Wi-Fi on Linux using Intel’s devices, you can send an email to linuxwifi intel.

When you configure the kernel, you can find this option in the following location: Some wireless drivers also require a rate control algorithm.


To enable manually power management, you can set the following module parameters to these values: The following devices are supported since kernel version: There are four repositories that we maintain: For more information on Intel Wireless products, please visit Intel Wireless. If you can connect to an access point, but still can’t connect to any server or get any connection to the internet it might be worth a try to disable Once you have the firmware loader in place or if you aren’t sure and you just want to try things to see if it worksyou need to install the firmware file into the appropriate location.

Monitor sniffer – see note. The fact that one of these options helped doesn’t prove that the issue being troubleshooted is ‘platform noise’, but it may be an indication. The lwl4965 necessary to support the devices is distributed separately under the firmware license. To make it work some kernel configuration is needed.

About iwldvm support and known issues. Bug fixes will be ported to This means that the bleeding edge of the backport tree will run against decently recent kernel usually against Linus’s tree. Having Wi-Fi and Bluetooth running at the same time is a challenge. uwl4965


Also note that using 40MHz and not 20MHz channel bandwidth will increase the probability to suffer from platform noise since more frequencies might impact the Wi-Fi performance. Our devices support monitor mode. Most information about the driver module can be obtained by modinfo iwlwifi:. This kind of interference might happen on 2.

To obtain the device name and verify that the wireless card is detected, execute the following ip command:. Wi-Fi heavily relies on radio frequencies, and those are subject to interference.

Iiwl4965 is why some people may face issues with devices that are handled by iwldvm. Where that appropriate location is depends again on your system distribution.
