Briefly describe your issue below:
So I’ve been working on this problem for about 5 hours now, have gone through tons of articles with no help. Today I decided to install Parrot Security OS onto my HP Spectre x360 Laptop. No dual boot or any of that, just wanting Parrot as main OS. During the installation I got a Network Driver Error, and it gave me a long list of network drivers to choose from, but non contained my network card driver (intel dual band wireless-ac 7265). I chose no driver to get past the screen, thinking I’ll fix it later.
Well here I am, almost 6 hours later pulling out my hair because I can’t figure this out to save my life. I downloaded the drivers needed from here, (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005511/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking.html). I downloaded the “iwlwifi-7265-ucode-22.214.171.124.tgz” onto a USB drive and copied the two files to /lib/firmware. That did not work.
I’ve gone through numerous articles and no help. I’m sure I’m missing something, I just don’t know what. I have some experience with Ubuntu, but not much with Debian/Parrot. Might also be worth noting, the Bluetooth works, I can scan for connections and connect.
I saw I may need to buy the “TP-Link TL-WN722N” (v1) network adapter to perform some actions, but right now all I care about is getting the actual wifi card to work.
