I hold a Dell Venue Pro 11 7130 with the following integrated network adapter: Intel Dual Band Wireless-N 7260. My aim is using Linux in live mode on it.
Most of the distros I've being running so far do work but they don't recognize it. They come with different kernel (older and newer), in particular the distros which did run on my tablet are the following:
- Backbox 4.4
- Fedora 23
- Kali linux 2.0
- Kali linux light 2.0
- Linuxmint 17.3 Cinnamon
- Lubuntu 15.10
- Tails 1.8.1
- Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
- Ubuntu 15.10
- Ubuntu 15.10 mate
It seems that the wireless adapter is not even recognized at all (by giving the
iwconfig on Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS I didn't obtain it).
Since I've read that some laptops coming with the same adapter didn't report so many issues than mine, I wonder if this depends on the adapter only, so I would like to ask:
according to your experience, does the issue depend on the Intel adapter only or is it not excludible that it may depend on some other hardware features related to the specific device in use?
