General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IWLWIFI has multiple definitions:

Intel Wireless WiFi Next Gen AGN - Wireless-N/Advanced-N/Ultimate-N (iwlwifi) found in drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_IWLWIFI:

Help text

Select to build the driver supporting the:

Intel Wireless WiFi Link Next-Gen AGN

This option enables support for use with the following hardware: Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6250AGN Adapter Intel 6000 Series Wi-Fi Adapters (6200AGN and 6300AGN) Intel WiFi Link 1000BGN Intel Wireless WiFi 5150AGN Intel Wireless WiFi 5100AGN, 5300AGN, and 5350AGN Intel 6005 Series Wi-Fi Adapters Intel 6030 Series Wi-Fi Adapters Intel Wireless WiFi Link 6150BGN 2 Adapter Intel 100 Series Wi-Fi Adapters (100BGN and 130BGN) Intel 2000 Series Wi-Fi Adapters Intel 7260 Wi-Fi Adapter Intel 3160 Wi-Fi Adapter Intel 7265 Wi-Fi Adapter Intel 8260 Wi-Fi Adapter Intel 3165 Wi-Fi Adapter

This driver uses the kernel's mac80211 subsystem.

In order to use this driver, you will need a firmware image for it. You can obtain the microcode from:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi.

The firmware is typically installed in /lib/firmware. You can look in the hotplug script /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent to determine which directory FIRMWARE_DIR is set to when the script runs.

If you want to compile the driver as a module ( = code which can be inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want), say M here and read Documentation/kbuild/modules.rst. The module will be called iwlwifi.
