[Solved] Intel Wireless 3165 [8086:3165] (rev 81) is not Recognized by 18.2

Postby Lapres_3 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 7:51 pm

I have an HP with the 3165 wireless card and unfortunately it doesn't work for me. I'm new(er) to linux and historically i have lucked out and things just 'work' so im pretty green.

I have tried to mind a few threads:
viewtopic.php?t=210525
viewtopic.php?t=241071
https://askubuntu.com/questions/672700/ ... 65-drivers

A curiousity is that #rfkill list shows a software block but i dont know how to clear it?

In other words i have tried a few things that Moderator JeremyB has suggested in other posts, but they haven't worked for me. I suspect (since i'm just following instructions verbatim) that i'm doing something wrong trying to build the backports firmware - if that's what its called. And i dont really understand renaming one firmware file for another. (I'm aware that doing things like that blind could cause a no-boot but, hey, that's how i learn)

My apologies if i missed something, i would search more, but wireless is one of the few things where i kinda need it to do research, otherwise i'm tethered to the wall in some inconvenient places.

Thank-you for your time, That worked. -marked [Solved]
Incredibly efficient response post.

Now i must learn about blacklisting - and whatever it is that i just blacklisted.

For some reason your HP computer caused the kernel to load an acer module resulting in a soft block that can't be cleared using normal methods. Blacklisting the acer-wmi module prevents the kernel from loading it and prevents the soft block on wifi
