PostPosted: Fri 25 Jan 2019, 15:41    Post subject:  Intel 9260 Wi-Fi setup  

The system is a homemade system powered by an ASRock J4105-ITX board which has an embedded Pentium J4105 processor, 2x 4GB of some spare 2666 MHz DDR4 memory, and a flash-based save drive connected via the board's USB 3.0 header. The system also includes an onboard M.2 E-key slot for a Wi-Fi card, which I have populated with an Intel 9260.

It is running the release of XenialPup 7.5 64bit hosted on ibiblio; It was installed using the UEFI iso loaded onto a live USB using Rufus 3.3.

Whenever I run the Network Wizard, it fails to recognize the Wi-Fi interface completely and only shows the Ethernet interface. I have found a post in the missing firmware thread that looks like its referring to my wireless card, but searching through the library of included modules didn't yield the iwlwifi-9260-th-b0-jf-b0-38.ucode that I was looking for. Any suggestions from the community would be greatly appreciated![/code]

I went to the site the first post of that thread linked to. Is this the file you are looking for?
http://www.fishprogs.software/puppy/firmware/iwlwifi-9260-th-b0-jf-b0-38.ucode
There are also several other versions of the "iwlwifi-9260" firmware.

I had no idea there was a link in that thread! I'm sorry, I must have assumed that those updates were added to the iso. Thank you for pointing that out!

Now what do I do?

The above-mentioned first post of the "missing firmware" thread has some instructions, which more or less boil down to "put the file into /lib/firmware and reboot".

If that's not enough to get it working, I don't know either; I've never done this myself.

So I'm still struggling to get the M.2 Wireless Adapter running. When I copied the iwlwifi-9260-th-b0-jf-b0-43.ucode file over via USB drive to /lib/firmware and noticed that the file was written with green text, while the surrounding files were all black. I'm wondering if there's any significance to that.

Anyways, I saved the session to a secondary USB drive, rebooted the session from the liveUSB, and came back to a session that didn't run the initial setup wizard on startup and had the iwlwifi-9260-th-b0-jf-b0-38.ucode file in /lib/firmware. Network Wizard still didn't recognize the wireless card, however.

I'm going to try loading the rest of the iwl-9260 files I found on fishprogs.software while I'm waiting for a response here, since I only tried the latest one added.

If you run "lspci", is this adapter detected?

So after running lspci, I got a pretty extensive output with 7 Intel devices listed. One was the host bridge, one was a communications device, one was an SMBus, and four were PCI Bridges.

00:00.1 Signal processing controller: Intel Corporation Device 318c (rev 03)

00:0e.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Device 3198 (rev 03)
00:0f.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation Device 319a (rev 03)
00:12.0 SATA controller: Intel Corporation Device 31e3 (rev 03)

Normally, an internal PCI WiFi adapter would appear as a Network Controller, which you don't have in your list.

I would go into the UEFI setup and look for a setting to enable the M.2 slot.

Is that something I can do from within X, or do I need to go to the board's UEFI screen at startup?

Modern intel wireless need kernel 4.10 or later. Also need to see which ucode is being sought by system.
To help with diagnosis, please post outputs of each of the following commands (in a terminal):

uname -r

and

dmseg | grep wifi
