Using Intel NUC (NUC5CPYH) with Ubuntu 16.10, I am trying to configure my WiFi to connect it to my home wireless network.

However, when I start the 'Network Manager', it does not scan any of the wifi networks I can detect with my mobile phone. I am trying to bring up the wlan interface via terminal (with the 'Network Manager' closed), but I am not able to find which the name of the interface is. I expected it to be 'wlan0', but it seems not to be.

The output of 'lspci -knn | grep Net -A3' is:

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Wireless 3165 [8086:3165] (rev 81)
    Subsystem: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless AC 3165 [8086:4010]
    Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
    Kernel modules: iwlwifi

The output of 'nmcli general status' is

STATE = disconnected
WIFI-HW = enabled
WIFI = enabled
WWAN-HW = enabled
WWAN = enabled

The output of 'nmcli device status' is

DEVICE = enp3s0 ; TYPE = ethernet ; STATE = unavailable ; CONNECTION = --
DEVICE = lo ; TYPE = loopback ; STATE = unmanaged ; CONNECTION = --
DEVICE = wlp2s0 ; TYPE = wifi ; STATE = unmanaged ; CONNECTION = --

Any similar experience? Thank you.

  • What is the output of 'nmcli general status' and 'nmcli device status'? – Tobias Jun 8 '17 at 8:36

    Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3 terminal command. – Pilot6 Jun 8 '17 at 9:19
