How to install intel wirless for Debian 🙂

The iwlwifi module (iwlagn prior to Linux 3.2) is produced by the iwlwifi Linux kernel driver, which supports several Intel wireless LAN adapters:

Intel Wireless WiFi 4965AGN

In Debian 7 „Wheezy“, this device is now supported by the iwlegacy driver (iwl4965 module).

Intel Wireless WiFi 5100AGN, 5300AGN, 5350AGN

Intel Wireless WiFi 5150AGN

Intel WiFi Link 1000BGN

Intel 6000 Series WiFi Adapters (6200AGN and 6300AGN)

Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6250AGN Adapter

Intel 6005 Series WiFi Adapters

Intel 6030 Series WiFi Adapters

Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6150BGN 2 Adapter

Intel 100 Series WiFi Adapters (100BGN and 130BGN)

Intel 2000 Series WiFi Adapters

Add a „non-free“ component to /etc/apt/sources.list, for example:


# Debian 7 "Wheezy"
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

Update the list of available packages and install the firmware-iwlwifi package:


root@debian:/home/panev# apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi

As the iwlwifi module is automatically loaded for supported devices, reinsert this module to access installed firmware:


root@debian:/home/panev# modprobe -r iwlwifi ; modprobe iwlwifi

Configure your wireless interface as appropriate for KDE :


root@debian:/home/panev# aptitude install plasma-widget-networkmanagement
