    HP Intel wifi 1000 not detected


    Hi all

    I have searched for a day and tried isntalling all sorts of microcode and hotplug etc with no luck. Basically I have Ubuntu 8.04LTS running on hp G71-340US laptop.

    here's my lspci
    00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07)
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)

    00:1a.7 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller #2 (rev 03)
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
    00:1c.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) PCI Express Port 1 (rev 03)
    00:1c.1 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) PCI Express Port 2 (rev 03)
    00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #1 (rev 03)
    00:1d.1 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #2 (rev 03)
    00:1d.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #3 (rev 03)
    00:1d.3 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #6 (rev 03)
    00:1d.7 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller #1 (rev 03)
    00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 Mobile PCI Bridge (rev 93)
    00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation ICH9M LPC Interface Controller (rev 03)
    00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation ICH9M/M-E SATA AHCI Controller (rev 03)
    00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) SMBus Controller (rev 03)
    00:1f.6 Signal processing controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) Thermal Subsystem (rev 03)
    02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 0084
    03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 02)

    Looks like the It's the one called "Intel Corporation Unknown device 0084"...
    The problem is I cannot use compat-wireless as the kernel is 2.6.24 and can't use the iwlwifi project because they are for kernels older than 2.6.26.

    I also tried copying microcode for Intel wifi 1000 into /lib/firmware but still does not detect anything. Hardware Driver is empty as well.

    Any advices would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks in advance!

    Try installing the hardy backported modules package.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-hardy
    You should be able to update the pciids so you don't get the unknown device message as so
    Code:
    sudo update-pciids

    the driver?

    Hi Reed9

    Thanks a lot! Now it detects the device in lspci.
    However, i tried to reboot the system but still it does not seem to detect any drivers..

    The problem is I cannot use compat-wireless as they only support kernel >= 2.6.25 and mykernel is 2.6.24 and can't use the iwlwifi project because they are for kernels older than 2.6.23.

    I also tried copying microcode for Intel wifi 1000 into /lib/firmware and /lib/firmware/linux-2.6.24-27-generic but still does not detect anything. Hardware Driver is empty as well.

    Any advices would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks in advance!

    I was hoping linux-backports-modules-hardy might include the newer driver.

    Have you considered updating to a more recent Ubuntu release? 10.04 is out this week, I believe.

    Yeah... maybe I should
    Only reason I stayed with Hardy was that when I tried Ubuntu 9 a week ago, one of my cross-compiler build (Xilinx microblaze tool chain) broke with memory overflow... whereas Ubuntu 8 had no problem.. I tried to rolling back GCC version to same as Ubuntu 8 (4.2) but still had same problem so i sticked with 8.

    Maybe i'll give it a try version 10 and see if the problem is solved.

    Thanks!!
