Linux already has a driver. You'll have to get the sources from wireless-testing git and compile it. See the discussion after about the middle of page 5 here:
There's far far far more users of Windows 7 than Windows 8 so why does Windows 8 get a driver on June 12th and still no driver for Windows 7?????????
There should have been a Windows 7 driver released at the same time as Windows 8 unless Intel is drinking the Microsoft Kool Aid.
This is supposed to be released Q2'13. Doesn't Intel's fiscal year end Dec 28? Quarter 1 ended March 30th 2013. So shouldn't Q2 end June 30th 2013? And if so...if it's supposed to be released during Q2, then isn't the release technically late?
Sorry, development is a hard gig. I understand that there can be unforeseen delays. There are also some things you must get right even before releasing test drivers. I'd just rather not loose patience and buy any one of the wireless AC usb devices.
Not as of June 30th. I compiled the 3.10 kernel from kernel.org and it still has the old version of the driver and therefore will not find the firmware. You'll need to get and compile the kernel from here: kernel/git/linville/wireless-testing.git - The wireless-testing tree, for continuous integration...
Correct. The only change would be the source. Here's a link to my forum with all the steps I used to compile the wireless kernel. https://openlinuxforums.org/index.php/topic,3274.msg108179.html#msg108179
I haven't been able to figure out how to get proprietary nVidia drivers to install with that kernel. Probably the same issue with AMD drivers too but I don't know that for sure. Just something to keep in mind.
I have seen that, thank you though. I am going to go the old fashion route and use make silentoldconfig, make, make modules_install install. This seems to work best with custom built kernels on Ubuntu...
I will let you know if the Nvidia drivers work. I do need them for Bumblebee.
You mean the kernel config? I'm not sure. When I compiled, I didn't have to specifically enable the iwlwifi drivers. The driver itself is, within the kernel source folder /drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi/iwl-7000. You'll also need a copy of the firmware file and put it in /lib/firmware. Let me know if you need a copy and I'll attach it in the thread I linked above as it doesn't look like attaching things here is possible.
