I bought a new Asus Q302 with the Intel 7260 wireless in it because "hey, it is supposed to work out of the box", but it doesn't.

The computer has wifi ONLY, no ethernet jack. As such, getting wifi working isn't an option. Right now I have it online via one of those USB to ethernet adapter dongles.

I've been trolling the internet for the last three days and have followed just about every bit of advice I've found. I have reinstalled Kubuntu 14.04 (with the 3.13 kernel) three times, have downloaded the latest .ucode from the Intel site (for 3.13+ kernels) and installed it in /lib/firmware, I've tried building the firmware from kernel 3.11 as well (as seen in this forum post on the Intel N 7260 wireless card ) The bluetooth, however did work out of the box, strangely enough.

My machine is up to date, I ran apt-get-update more than once.

iwconfig says:

eth0      no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

I've been battling this for three days and I just can't figure it out. I've gotten wifi to work on laptops over the years, but I've finally met my match.

If you have any thoughts/ideas/anything to offer. If I can't get it working within the next day or two I'm going to have to take the machine back... which sucks because I really like it (other than the wifi).

  • Try and connect using KDE desktop. I've managed to connect at the campus, but not at home with KDE (didn't manage either using gnome/unity.

  • This issue was fixed in Ubuntu kernel 3.13.0-40 and in the 3.18 rc1 kernel. The subsystem ID for rev cb was not in the alias list for iwlwifi

Well, several days of this, several Kubuntu 14.04 reinstalls, a Kubuntu 13.10 install, a Linux Mint 17 install, a Debian install, upgrades to kernel 3.14 & 3.15 as well as installing the iwlwifi firmware from Kernel 3.16 did not solve anything: still no WiFi.

As such, I'm throwing in the towel and taking the laptop back. I'll buy something without a 7260 card.

A personal thanks to User310767. I appreciated your help.

Here's hoping the next laptop will be more successful.

If I were you, I'd get a different laptop anyway. I don't know if you heard but the 7260 has a tremendous amount of problems on pretty much every operating system. Windows 7, 8, 8.1, BSD, Arch, Gentoo, Ubuntu, etc. I called Intel the other day to dig deeper after my XPS 13 with a 7260 kept disconnecting. The Intel rep sounded a bit down in their response, indicating that they are working on a fix for a more stable connection, but there is no ETA. This card has been out for a year. It's not like Intel (in my experience) to not fix the issue promptly, which makes me suspect this issue dives a bit deeper into the hardware level.

For my issue in particular, my 7260 is an M.2 form factor, which I'm having a hard time finding replacements for. Dell has been great and is issuing me a replacement laptop to a system without a 7260 since, as per Dell under warranty, there is nothing else besides the 7260 in M.2 that they have available. The 7260 is also available in half sized mini PCIE form factor, which has a world of options for swapping out (unless you're unfortunate enough to have one of the laughable Lenovo or HP systems that whitelist their cards so you can't swap them. First item on the agenda when I'm president is to make this practice 100% illegal)

What concerns me most is this card is widely distributed with Dell, Lenovo, and even System 76. How on earth this makes sense is something totally beyond me, as some days I disconnect a dozen times every half hour. Others, sometimes I'll go 3 days without a disconnect, but the times it acts up makes it a definite deal breaker.

Anyway, dig around on Google with something like "7260 disconnects" if you want to read more. A lot of ticked off users out there... Sorry for my negative nanny oriented 2c on the matter, but I'd rather users be aware instead of dealing with a headache like I was.

  • It's no joke that this 7260 is friggin' EVERYWHERE. 80% of laptops at the store had one. I had FOUR days of headache trying to get that to work. No joke, that was the deepest I've ever delved into the guts of Linux. I learned a lot, I just wish I had something to show for ask that work. Live and learn. And thanks for your 2¢ both here and over on reddit.

look at this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-firmware/+bug/1354975

essentially install the Kernel 3.13.0-37_3.13.0-37.64+iwlltr0001 from: http://people.canonical.com/~sforshee/iwl-ltr/trusty/

and also install the linux-firmware 1.127.7.

If it does not work, you can try to type:

$echo "options iwlmvm power_scheme=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwlmvm.conf
$echo "options iwlwifi bt_coex_active=N swcrypto=1 11n_disable=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
$sudo reboot

I am running an XPS-15-9530, intel wireless 9260 chip , on kernel 3.13.0-39. I added the options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1, and it had no effect. So i tried adding all your options above, and it has worked so far today. I didn't have a /etc/modprobe.d/iwlmvm.conf, so i just created one and added your options iwlmvm power_scheme=1

from the below you can see it lists, iwlwifi-7260-7.ucode, but i can find iwlwifi-7260-8.ucode and iwlwifi-7260-9.ucode in the firmware folder /lib/firmware so i was curious can I/should I make it use the ...-9.ucode version? how do i tell it to use the latest one rather than ...-7.ucode?

my resulting modinfo looks like:

Download the 7260 one, unzip and move to firmware folder.

  • I just noticed you said this didn't work.. try upgrading the kernel to 3.15 and doing this again. I have a laptop with the same 7260 running manjaro with 3.15. Works flawlessly, I used to use 14.04 but I ran into the same issue and the firmware always fixed it but after a certain update, didn't work till I upgraded to the 3.15 kernel for some odd reason. OR Could be a faulty wireless card is all.

  • I can confirm that the card is in good order, the machine came with Windows 8.1 and it worked just fine in that OS. I'm currently dual-booting the machine. I'll try the 3.15 update. I really hope that works, I want this "adventure" to be over

  • Well, Kernel 3.15 didn't do anything at all. I'm going to try another idea, will report back.

I have an asus q302. What I did to get my internet working is I deleted the iwlwifi-7 driver. Moved the -8 driver to /lib/firmware. Updated my kernel to 3.16 and rebooted. Worked fine so far.

  • Can you describe in detail how you did that? Even I as an experienced Linux user have problems following you. Feb 28 '15 at 23:01
