I tried following below link for installing wireless drivers, but still no joy

How can I install Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 drivers?

magesh@magesh-HP-Pavilion-Notebook:~/Downloads/linux-4.4.1$ dmesg | grep iwl
[    9.579767] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-3165-12.ucode failed with error -2
[    9.579781] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-3165-11.ucode failed with error -2
[    9.579792] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-3165-10.ucode failed with error -2
[    9.579794] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: request for firmware file 'iwlwifi-3165-10.ucode' failed.
[    9.580322] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Unsupported splx structure
[    9.700855] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Driver unable to support your firmware API. Driver supports v12, firmware is v13.

All i understood from the link is, copying two driver files, Please advice how handle other firmware load.

Still Wireless is not working for me after restarting the system.

  • Rename 7265-12 to 3165-12, if that rmane works. The kernel does not support 13. – Pilot6 Feb 7 '16 at 20:14

  • What's the output of uname -r? Do you have the package linux-firmware installed? – David Foerster Feb 7 '16 at 20:38
  • @DavidFoerster The problem is that there is no firmware for 3165 anywhere. The other answer offers to rename 7265. – Pilot6 Feb 7 '16 at 20:40

This will work on your current kernel

wget https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/_media/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi-7265-ucode-25.17.12.0.tgz
tar zxvf iwlwifi-7265-ucode-25.17.12.0.tgz
cd iwlwifi-7265-ucode-25.17.12.0
sudo cp iwlwifi-7265D-12.ucode /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-3165-12.ucode

Reboot
