    Wifi Adapter not detected / Wifi not working

    Hey guys,

    I just went through a cumbersome process of installing and configuring Kali on my laptop. I got everything running but the Wifi. Below are some details on my system, I am clueless as to what to try next.


    Output of lspci (network part)
    44:00.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 10)
    45:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless-AC 9260 (rev 29)
    Followed the guide here to copy firmware for 9260 :
    It is in my /lib/firmware directory

    If I modprob iwlwifi and then run dmsg here is last of the output
    Intel(R) Wireless WiFi driver for Linux
    Copyright(c) 2003- 2015 Intel Corporation

    Output of iwconfig

    lo        no wireless extensions.
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    Running rfkill list is not even detecting it, just showing bluetooth which is unblocked

    In GUI: Wifi adapter not connected/found

    Kernel: 4.16.0-kali2-amd64


    Running lshw -C network it shows

     *-network UNCLAIMED

    Firmware should usually be coming from a package, not downloaded directly. What version of the firmware?


    What is the output of lspci -nn for that intel adapter?
