I'm using Debian 3.2.65 with kernel version 3.2.0-4-amd64 and I'm having issues getting the Intel 7260 card working (http://www.intel.co.uk/content/www/uk/en/wireless-products/dual-band-wireless-ac-7260-bluetooth.html), could anyone give some insight into why this isn't working?

This is all the relevant information that I can think of;

sudo lspci | grep Network


02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Device 08b1 (rev c3)

What I think might be important from lshw

*-network UNCLAIMED

uname -a gives (just checking I've not put anything wrong in the description or something);

Linux debian 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.65-1+deb7u2 x86_64 GNU/Linux

iwconfig gives;

lo        no wireless extensions.
eth0      no wireless extensions.

the 7260 driver is in /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-7260-10.ucode (installed via apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi)

See wifi not working, have I installed the correct drivers?; your wifi adapter needs kernel 3.10 or later. You can install 3.16 from the Debian backports, or wait for the release of Debian 8 in just a few days (April 25).
