I recently started learning Linux and I'm booting into Debian from USB. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I cannot get my wifi up. Regular wired works perfectly.
iwconfig shows no wlan0. No messages about iwlwifi firmware in dmesg.
lsmod shows iwlwifi loaded and used by cfg80211. I can modprobe iwlwifi off and on.
Below are some screen shots with some info. Sorry for the ugly picture. I was really trying to figure this out myself but not sure if its going to happen.
uname -r; lsmod | grep iwl; dmesg | grep firm; lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
Updated to include 'lsh -C network'
Updating the kernel to 4.9 caused me to boot to black screen presumably because of a conflict with display drivers. I've attempted
apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-intel but the system responds by telling me it is not installed and so not removed. 'locate xorg' shows 3 files located in
/usr/share/X11/xkb/rules and one in
lshw -c video reveals 2 devices, both with configurations set to "latency=0" which I presume means they are not using separate drivers.
