    Hi,

    I’ve upgraded to v3.8.0 and there is an error with wifi driver :

    extract from dmesg :
    [ 5.694208] Intel(R) Wireless WiFi driver for Linux
    [ 5.694211] Copyright(c) 2003- 2015 Intel Corporation
    [ 5.697666] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-3160-17.ucode failed with error -2
    [ 5.697676] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: no suitable firmware found!

    lspci :

    04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 3160 (rev 83)
    Subsystem: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless AC 3160
    Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 19
    Memory at 81200000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
    Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 3
    Capabilities: [d0] Message Signalled Interrupts: 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-
    Capabilities: [40] #10 [0002]

    All other settings are fine.

    no wifi issues with 3.7.

    Thanks,
    Didier

    I think error -2 is a “no such file or directory” error.

    I suspect you are missing the firmware file for your wifi chip, iwlwifi-3160-17.ucode.

    These files are usually under stupid licences that do not allow re-distribution, so they are not included in the OS install, and need to be installed afterwards.

    I looks like you can get the file you need from here: https://github.com/OpenELEC/iwlwifi-firmware/tree/master/firmware (I just found this with google).

    But I’m not sure where in the filesystem you need to put it, possibly under /lib/firmware/

    Thanks for the hint but.
    The file system is read only,

    root@zershell firmware> touch test
    touch: cannot touch `test’: Read-only file system
    root@zershell firmware> pwd
    /lib/firmware

    I had a look in /Database but didn’t find any place for drivers.

    I there a way to add drivers in Zeroshell ?

    Thanks
