Intel wifi link 1000 series, how to get it working?

Hi, I have installed arch linux on my netbook acer 1825PTZ, its wireless card is Intel wifi link 1000series, I have tried to follow the wireless setup guide on archwiki but I have not come to a conclusion...I've searched among the list of supported drivers but I am not sure if it is supported or not. So can you plz make a more accurate research? i would like to keep ndiswrapper as ultimate choice...

You need to post relevant output that will assist in determining your problem, simply telling people to elaborate on the wiki isn't going to get you any help or win you any favor.

Your wireless card is officially supported by the stock kernel (more). Install linux-firmware package. If that doesn't solve, post output of dmesg | grep iwlagn.

Ha! Are you sure pacman doesn't find the package? It's in the core repo... Just try pacman -Ss linux-firmware and see if it's found.

There is no package by that name in the official Arch repos.  What you are looking for is the "linux-firmware" package. You need to run pacman -S linux-firmware.  The iwlwifi-1000-3.ucode file is contained in that package and will be installed in the right place and shouldn't require any further setup or configuration. This will allow your kernel to initialize the wifi card and get it going. Actually connecting to a network will require some software steps, as described in the wiki and elsewhere (ifconfig/iwconfig/wpa_supplicant on the command line, or a simpler all-in-one program like wicd or network-manager).

According to the lspci command I am using "Intel Corporation WiFi Link 1000 Series," and my wireless connection generally works. I also have linux-firmware installed. If pacman can't find the package, perhaps there's a problem with your mirror.

Re: Intel wifi link 1000 series, how to get it working?

the package linux-firmware is not between primary files...so I use the command

dmesg | grep firmware

to enable the firmware...then used netcfg with a simple wpa-wireless profile to start the connection^^

Ehh... can dmesg without any options actually enable anything? Anyway, I post this in case you still get some issues.

Hopefully you will be able to use ethernet, or you could download the linux-firmware package from a mirror on a different system.

To download the package from a mirror without pacman, go to one of the HTTP addresses in /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist with "$repo" swapped with "core" and $arch swapped with either i686 or x86_64. You should be able to see a link to a linux-firmware file. When you've transferred this file over to your Arch system, you install it by

# pacman -U /path/to/package

I avoided the Netinstall image as I suspected that I would have some major issues getting Internet connectivity. If you chose the core image, you should have the package already installed.

I just ran the Netinstall image in a virtual machine, and the linux-firmware package seems to be missing (according to pacman -Q linux-firmware). I think it ought to be included, but I am not sure who I should ask.

You could use netcfg. Note the section in the article called "Connecting automatically."

Re: Intel wifi link 1000 series, how to get it working?

yes I have put net-profiles between daemons and wrote my network profile in NETWORKS=(wireless-wpa), but I need to know how to enable wireless card at boot :s
writing under interfaces wlan0="dhcp" actually enables it but doesn't connect to the network profile, so i think it goes in conflict with netcfg? O.o

Re: Intel wifi link 1000 series, how to get it working?

it should start by default if you put it that way, you don't need the wlan0=dhcp part
