Just got a new worklaptop, and have been trying for two days to get the wifi working..

As advised in https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2191382

I chose to give up the search and ask you for help, because I have tried all kinds of solutions, to no avail.

Last thing I tried is a symlink from the new driver in /lib/firmware to the older one, because it was trying to load another driver which was not downloaded yet.

( lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 okt 21 22:05 iwlwifi-7265D-24.ucode -> iwlwifi-7265D-22.ucode )

https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi/core_release gives the impression that the version my laptop wants is newer than what is being released as stable.

the output of the diags:

My OS is Ubuntu Gnome 16.10 And the laptop is an Asus Sonicmaster.

Any help is appreciated, and if more information is required, please let me know.

Run in terminal

sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/asus.conf <<< "options asus_nb_wmi wapf=4"

and reboot.
