Debian Install Intel Wireless WiFi

Intel Wireless WiFi Link, Wireless-N, Advanced-N, Ultimate-N devices

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

deb wheezy main contrib non-free

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

sudo 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:

sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi
sudo modprobe iwlwifi
