2018-01-15 11:20:06 -0500 answered a question Install .ucode firmware wifi driver

So... Can anyone help me? I still can't solve this problem. I don't have wifi on my fedora. I think I'll just have to try differend distributions but I really wanted to use fedore because it is not that popular.

I had same problem, but that was sandisk USB stick fault. With different USB stick installation went well and system loaded.

Can you explain more broadly what my further steps would be to make iwlwifi to load the .ucode file? When does it load that firmware ( at what point, event ).

Hello, I have a laptop Lenovo Y720 with Intel 8265 wifi adapter.

As I installed fedora, there is wifi switch in upright screen corner, which says WiFi Off. Then I click it to turn WiFi on, but when I open that small window in corner, the button still says WiFi Off... I suspect that I don't have appropriate drivers for this WiFi card.

I downloaded driver (package iwlwifi-8265-ucode-22.361476.0.tgz) from here

Inside the package there is .ucode file (I think that's the actual driver), license and readme files. I was searching the Internet for days trying to install driver, only thing I could do was paste .ucode file in /lib/firmware/ but then event after rebooting system WiFi won't work.

As I was using windows usually, and had tried Fedora earlier but on different machine with no issues, I'm unfamiliar to such problems. I expect something similar to windows drivers - download - dbl click - next next next.. Installed. Basically I don't even understand what is my situation now and what and how should I do. I don't know how to update kernel, modify kernel or some configurations. Also why I should update kernel if I just installed feroda latest version 27. I would appreciate if someone could help me solve this issue by little steps, because I wanted to use fedora and not Ubuntu / Mint etc... So far I tried lspci and my wifi card is listed there.
