wifi driver - iwl6000 (Intel Ultimate-N 6300)

How do i get this even?
and secondly load it at startup via udev?

Can't seem to find it :/


Should mention that lspci finds the cards, both the ethernet and the network controller from Intel.
ip addr however shows nothing except eth0 and loopback.

Where have you looked?

Why would you assume udev is the way to do this?  It is one way, but generally not the right way unless you are "hotpluggin" wireless cards (even then I'm not sure if that'd be the right way).

Should mention that lspci finds the cards

You should also mention what the *output* of lspci -vnn is so we know what card you are talking about.

Google, AUR and pacman. I'm new at Archlinux so I might be going about this in the wrong way but at least I'm trying before i post.

I read it some where, and I didn't really think twice about why I wouldn't do it as long as it got my wifi to work.

I've used ip before, but I've gotten lazy using ifconfig and other tools so I'm new at this way of configuring network interfaces but here's what I've tried:

[root@faparch ~]# ip link set wlan0 up

[root@faparch ~]# ip addr
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN 
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000
    link/ether d0:67:e5:4c:e2:09 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet 10.0.0.41/8 brd 10.255.255.255 scope global eth0
    inet6 fe80::d267:e5ff:fe4c:e209/64 scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

[root@faparch ~]# ip addr show dev wlan0

[root@faparch ~]#

Re: wifi driver - iwl6000 (Intel Ultimate-N 6300)

What relevant kernel modules are loaded?

lsmod |grep -i iwl

You could also try this:

# rfkill unblock wifi

Re: wifi driver - iwl6000 (Intel Ultimate-N 6300)

rfkill wont help was the interface isn't even listed (and wifi isn't an interface).

It looks like the appropriate module is loaded, but the interface isn't created - not sure why that would be.

Neither do I and while it comforts me that it might not be as simple as I'm doing a lot of things wrong, I still need help :)

Re: wifi driver - iwl6000 (Intel Ultimate-N 6300)

Don't know why, but:

ip addr show dev wlan0

also returns nothing on my laptop, although I do have a wlan0 interface.

What does

ip link

return ?

Re: wifi driver - iwl6000 (Intel Ultimate-N 6300)

Hi all,

I have exactly the same problem. I have Dell E6410 with Intel Ultimate-N 6300 wifi. I can scan wifi signals but cannot change state of wlan0 from DOWN to UP. If you need some aditional information I can send it.

Re: wifi driver - iwl6000 (Intel Ultimate-N 6300)

walduf, that is definitely not the same problem - and if you can scan for networks then your interface IS up.
