Hello, Debian 10.4 here, on a Toshiba Portege A30 C 1JC.

Debian doesn't see wifi adapter (nor wwan one, but that's less important to me).

Drivers are a long list of iwlwifi-8000C-3x.ucode, which I can't find anywhere.

Any suggest, at least for wifi ones?

Thanks!

Hi arochester, could you tel me the whole command? I keep getting errors from shell.

It appears that driver is already installed, anyway: I installed it from software center, is it ok?

News: unistalled and reinstalled, and now it apparently works: I see wifi networks, although there is no wwan or bluetooth...

The full command
1) If you don't have sudo become Root by first inputting
Code:
su
. It will ask for you password. Then input
Code:
apt install iwlwifi
2) If you have sudo input
Code:
sudo apt install iwlwifi
3) If you have already installed it, it will not work until you REBOOT.

I installed it with sudo dpkg -i namefile.deb, as Root.

It seem to work now, even have Bluetooth working! Thank you!
