[iwlwifi] No WiFi Interface shown up

Post by wix »

New to BSD. After a fresh install of GhostBSD 22.11.02 on my HP laptop with Intel WiFi chip for trials, there is no Wi-Fi interface shown up for connections. Any help would be highly appreciated!

Hardware

Code: Select all

> pciconf -l | grep iwm
iwm0@pci0:0:20:3:        class=0x028000  rev=0x30  hdr=0x00  vendor=0x8086  device=0x9df0  subvendor=0x8086  subdevice=0x0034

Configurations

Tried things mentioned at https://forums.ghostbsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=2417 but still no wlan0 appearing.


Symptoms

System boot log:

ifconfig -a only shows lo0 interface, not seeing wlan0


sudo sysctl net.wlan.devices shows nothing as:
