I have installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my system via dual boot. I am able to connect to the Internet via Ethernet, but the wifi does not seem to work on my OS. I have already tried the solutions mentioned in 1. WIfi dropping problems in Lenovo Y520 legion 2. WI-FI doesn't work (Hard Blocked) But still I have not been able to fix the problem.Can somebody help me out with the issue ?
Your WiFi chipset is an Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265. Check if
iwlwifi is installed.
It seems that installing the generic package for Intel WiFi would not be enough and you will have to manually place the firmware for your WiFi chipset.
Download it: iwlwifi-8265-ucode-22.361476.0.tgz.
Unpack it and copy it in your
sudo cp ~/Downloads/iwlwifi-*.ucode /lib/firmware
And then load the driver with:
sudo modprobe iwlwifi
This information (and more) is available in linux wireless / iwlwifi
You can use these commands:
sudo modprobe -r ideapad-laptop sudo rfkill unblock all rfkill list all
