Wifi Issue

Asked by Thomas Whelehan on 2021-01-08

I am having trouble connecting my Laptop to WiFi, so far no option for wireless internet connection is showing. I am running Ubuntu 16.04 on a dell G3 3500 laptop, and I have dual-booted windows.

After running this command:
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install usbutils pciutils hwinfo grep rfkill; sudo lshw -C network; rfkill list; sudo iwlist scan | grep -Ei 'chan|ssid'; cat /etc/network/interfaces; cat /etc/lsb-release; lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net; lsusb; nmcli g; sudo lshw -short; uname -a; sudo updatedb; dmesg | grep -E '02:00|80211|acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|brcm|CX|eth|ipw|ireless|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|ound|p54|prism|rror|rtl|RTL|rt2|RT2|rt3|RT3|rt5|RT5|rt6|RT6|rt7|RT7|usb|witch|wl';sudo dmidecode|grep -E 'anufact|roduct|erial|elease'; iwconfig; grep -E '80211|acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|brcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt6|rt7|wmi|witch|wl' /etc/modprobe.d/*; cat /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state; sudo hwinfo --netcard ; ps -aux|grep -E 'wpa|icd|etwork'; netstat -rn ; cat /etc/resolv.conf; ls -lia /boot; grep tmpfs /etc/fstab; ubuntu-support-status || ubuntu-security-status; sudo update-pciids; sudo update-usbids; sudo lsmod

The terminal outputs:

1. Why are you running an operating system as old as Ubuntu 16.04 on this quite new hardware? There are just three and a half months support left, before it goes into end of life status.

2. The package management on your system is configured to search for the installation DVD whenever you do a package update. This does not make sense, and you should disable the DVD from the list of repository sources.
To do this:
Open a terminal window (e.g. by simultaneously pressing ctrl-alt-t) and execute the program
software-properties-gtk
remove the tickmark besides the installation DVD.

3. From your log:
[ 7.899055] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: Failed to load firmware chunk!
[ 7.899170] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: Could not load the [0] uCode section
[ 7.899209] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: Failed to start INIT ucode: -110
[ 7.926060] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: Failed to run INIT ucode: -110

For me this indicates that there are problems with firmware loading.
How did you download iwlwifi-7260-ucode-15.227938.0 and what did you do with that file?

Hi,

Thank you for helping.

1. I am learning ROS, and the distribution used in my course is Kinetic, which only runs on ubuntu 16

2. Great, ill do this.

3. I found the wifi adapter, and then found the corresponding driver for this card through an ubuntu repository. I then extracted this and saved it in /lib/firmware

Thanks again.

Thomas

Are you sure that iwlwifi-7260-ucode-15.227938.0 is the correct firmware for that device?
The logs tell "iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: Detected Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 9462, REV=0x354"
According to https://www.intel.de/content/www/de/de/support/articles/000005511/network-and-io/wireless.html you would need a firmware file with the name iwlwifi-9000-pu-b0-jf-b0-34 (which is not available in the linux-firmware package for Ubuntu 16.04 but only in Ubuntu 18.04 and later)

I see the issue, I am very new to Ubuntu and having to learn very quickly! This is quite a dilemna, I have decided to go with your initial suggestion to update to Ubuntu 20, wifi is now working. :) thanks for your help.
