Because of a really unstable Wifi connection, I think upgrading the firmware of my Intel(R) Wireless N 7260 from 7260-10 to 7260-14 could possibly fix the problem.
I stumbled upon this post, where the top answerer wrote this:
Have you tried
sudo cp /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-7260-10.ucode /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-7260-10.ucode.bak sudo cp /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-7260-12.ucode /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-7260-10.ucode
Then reboot, renaming the file works sometimes
You could edit the source from the backports by going into the backports directory and into
iwl-7000.cline 72 as it should be
#define IWL7260_UCODE_API_MAX 10
and change it to
#define IWL7260_UCODE_API_MAX 12
I tried renaming the files as proposed, without success (after rebooting,
modinfo iwlwifi and
dmesg indicates that the version stays the same).
I would like to try the second option, so if I correctly understood, I have to recompile the
iwl-7000.c source file as explained and reinstall the backports, but I really don't know how to do that. Also the
iwl-7000.c source file is currently not present on my system.
Could anybody explain me how to do that?
Ps: My kernel's version is
