Linux* Support for Intel® Wireless Adapters





Who supports my Linux* driver?

Linux drivers are part of the upstream Linux* kernel. They're available through the regular channels, distributions, or the Linux* kernel archives. We support use of the drivers only in the kernel version the driver was a part of. See the table below for a list of supported devices by the iwlwifi driver. Find more information about supported devices and firmware versions on the Intel Wi-Fi Linux community page.

If you have technical issues or general questions about Intel Wi-Fi on Linux, contact Intel Customer Support.

What firmware does my wireless device require?

The wireless device requires firmware to operate. Firmware usually ships with your distribution, or you can download it from the table below. Each download provides firmware under its own license.

To install firmware:

  1. Copy the files into the distribution-specific firmware directory, /lib/firmware.
  2. If the directory doesn't work, refer to your distribution documentation.
  3. If you configure the kernel yourself, make sure firmware loading is enabled.


The Intel wireless firmware is a part of Linux kernel. To obtain the latest Intel wireless firmware, install the latest (and stable) version of Linux kernel.

The following table contains only the first official firmware version released, which is only guaranteed to work with the kernel version specified in the table. To get the latest version for newer kernels, use the firmware git tree instead.
