When I install Debian, installer request network connection. But Debian can't found my Ethernet card (Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260).

I use non-free installer and try put .ucode file in /firmware/ folder on USB (from here), but it not work!

I also try renamed iwlwifi-8000 in iwlwifi-8260, but it also not work.

Big thanks for your response!


According to intel to get the wifi working on Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 on debian you need a kernel version > 4.1 , also it is not possible to load the wifi driver during the install because the stable version use the 3.16 kernel version;
