I used the amd64 etch binary iso and it worked OK. As I don’t think I have the history with Linux to know what methods I should be using and what methods may be out of date. In these situations, drop to the console and manually mount see mount 8 your removable storage on a temporary directory e. A good replacement for initramfs is yaird. To get the latest version for newer kernels, use the firmware git tree instead. This is why some people may face issues with devices that are handled by iwldvm. For older chips, there are other drivers:

Table of Contents Introduction. It should be improved to list the matching package names.

Install the ipwsource and module-assistant package. You dbian contact me and we could get more in-depth with your problems cheers.

The fact that one of these options helped doesn’t prove that the issue being troubleshooted is ‘platform noise’, but it may be an indication.

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

In these situations, drop to the console and manually mount see mount 8 your removable storage on a temporary directory e. Also note that using 40MHz and not 20MHz channel bandwidth will increase the probability to suffer from platform noise since more frequencies might impact the Wi-Fi performance.


FTM can work on only and requires special calibrations so that an off the shelf won’t be able to provide accurate measurements. I think my problem was something to do with my SATA drive not being recognised properly with the image I made using mkinitrd, so then I tried to make another one using initramfs, but this didn’t seem to work for me either. A simple file rename fixes the job and I think it’s a slight bug or typo on the developer’s side.

You may see firmware crashes in case you didn’t set that module parameter.

So, these were my 3 cents as a reply to the “instead of yours amd64 I took having a coreduo2 processor” sentence. Well actually the main diff is that you’re running a 32bit system on a 64bit capable CPU, why I’m running a 64bit system with 64bit optimized software and if I need to I can run 32bit apps too 64bit mode can emulate 32bit, but not the other way infel. Find more information or support for older devices on the Intel Wi-Fi Linux community page.

For bug reports and debuggingplease vebian the page dedicated to that. On my new laptop it was like 2 hours, because the hardware was like 3 years newer than my desktop, so I had to disable some options and enable others, which wasn’t needed on my desktop.


Our policy is to close bugs that have been pending for input for more than two weeks.

In some cases, firmware supplied on removable media may not be detected automatically e. We appreciate all feedback, but cannot reply or give deban support. See for details. The commit that disabled power management is here. Once you have the firmware loader in place or if you aren’t sure and you just want to try things to see if it worksyou need to install the firmware file into the appropriate location.

In order to determine if your device is a ‘D’ version, you can check the dmesg output: You should screw around with intep kernel for your own good. If a previous kernel worked for ya, then the newer one should work too if not better. I am a new user!!

You kinda miss out on some of the perks if you stick to i Found on the Lemote Yeeloong and embedded devices. NAN isn’t considered stable yet and may or may not work depending on the firmware version.
