I recently installed Debian onto my 3rd gen Thinkpad X1 Carbon and am having some issues with getting WiFi to work. I tried following quite a few different suggestions online and none seem to be helping me - here is some info about my machine and what I have done already. Bluetooth works perfectly.
DEVICE TYPE STATE CONNECTION enp0s25 ethernet unavailable -- lo loopback unmanaged --
And the response of
lspci doesn't have a wireless controller inside. Ethernet Controller is
Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (3) I218-LM (rev 3).
sudo dmesg | grep iwl is nothing.
I can't run modinfo because it isn't installed.
My computer has an Intel 7265 Wireless card, and I've tried downloading both the drivers from here - List of firmware in Linux kernel and dropping them into
/lib/firmware, which didn't work for me. Nothing appeared to change.
I tried following this guide - Re: wifi not working on my new lenovo thinkpad x-1 but it requires installing software onto my laptop without internet, which I can't easily do. Keryx doesn't appear to be working anymore, and I can't install software with its dependencies onto my X1 Carbon effectively over bluetooth.
Any advice or suggestions?
