Re: Debian Buster non free net installer with firmware 10.2 is requesting for iwlwifi-8000c 22 to 33.ucode files for wifi device

Forgot to put this on there, but the package for Buster can be found at https://packages.debian.org/buster/firmware-iwlwifi

Download the .deb from the link at the bottom of that page and put it on a flash drive to load into the machine.

Good Morning Mr. D’Costa,

I just did this exact thing this Monday. What you’ll want to do is find and download the firmware-iwlwifi package[1], put it onto a flash drive and plug it into the laptop when it asks for the driver on removable media. The software should find the file on its own and handle it from there.

Best Regards,
Raymond Yang

I have a Lenovo laptop. I don't know the model number of the laptop so I can't tell you the exact wifi device model number. Sorry about that.

But when I tried to install Debian Buster from the non-free net installer with non-free firmware 10.2 from the website, the installer is asking me to load from a USB stick where iwlwifi-8000c- from 22.ucode to 33.ucode files are kept.

Can anyone tell me what should I do now? And why the net installer is asking for these files when the net installer already should have these files?

I also tried installing from regular Debian Buster 10.2 net installer and the same problem persists.
