I just bought a new computer and I intalled Debian on it. I am having a hard time with the wifi connection. It seems that Debian can not see the wlan0 network interface.
To provide some details, my version of Debian is:
Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.63-2+deb7u1 x86 GNU/Linux
lspci --n I found that my wireless controller is the following:
02:00.0 Netwrok Controller : Intel Corporation Device [8086:08b1] (rev 73)
that should correspond to an
Intel(r) Wireless-N 7260.
At this page (https://packages.debian.org/wheezy-backports/firmware-iwlwifi) I found that I should need the non-free firmware-iwlwifi package from wheezy backports.
Hence I modified my
sources.list file to accept also non-free packages from wheezy-backports and I installed the above package.
Anyway nothing happens and I still don't have a wlano interface. Any idea on how to solve this?
