iwlwifi needs a firmware update for Tara

Post by theoldfellow » Thu Jun 21, 2018 6:41 am

I built a new Tara box with a Ryzen 2700x on a Gigabyte x470 Aorus Gaming 7 WiFI motherboard. It has an Intel iwlwifi chip.
The wifi doesn't work with Linux Mint Tara beta (great release BTW).

This is the fix: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1038242 ... -and-16-04

In all probability a later Linux Kernel (I'm running 4.15.0-23) will include this fix but until then, hopefully, this will help someone else. :D
Cheers,
TOF.
