Intel Corporation Wireless 8265 / 8275 - CentOS 8 - Not working

Post by burgh16 » 2020/12/10 23:52:12

I have been searching this Forum but haven't been able to get my wifi working.

$ lspci -nn | grep -i net
00:1f.6 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (4) I219-V [8086:15d8] (rev 21)
3a:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Wireless 8265 / 8275 [8086:24fd] (rev 78)

Output from command - nmcli - shows "sw disabled"

wlp58s0: unavailable
"Intel 8265 / 8275"
wifi (iwlwifi), E2:06:82:01:BD:56, sw disabled, hw, mtu 1500

Believe I have the right Firmware as shown
In /lib/firmware I see this file --> iwlwifi-8265-22.ucode

I used nmtui to ADD etc, file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-MYWIFI
trying to use DHCP for address


HWADDR=D4:3B:04:AE:9D:AE
ESSID=MYWIFI
MODE=Managed
KEY_MGMT=WPA-PSK
MAC_ADDRESS_RANDOMIZATION=default
TYPE=Wireless
PROXY_METHOD=none
BROWSER_ONLY=no
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
DEFROUTE=yes
IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=no
IPV6INIT=no
NAME=MYWIFI
UUID=6bd6c443-8b7d-4c32-a2e4-3cef09d42943
DEVICE=wlp58s0
ONBOOT=yes

Output from nmcli radio show WIFI disabled
WIFI-HW WIFI WWAN-HW WWAN
enabled disabled enabled enabled

I found reference to rfkill and performed the following

[jay@CentOS1 firmware]$ sudo rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes <------
Hard blocked: no
[jay@CentOS1 firmware]$ sudo rfkill unblock 1
[jay@CentOS1 firmware]$ sudo rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no <-------
Hard blocked: no

Then brought up the interface using rfkill

[jay@CentOS1 firmware]$ sudo ip link set dev wlp58s0 up <-----

ifconfig shows UP

wlp58s0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
ether e2:06:82:01:bd:56 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet)
RX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B)
RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0
TX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B)
TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0

But still no IP Address assigned

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
Jay
