It’s unlikely that any better alternatives exist to what is distributed through the mainline kernel,
So if you have any problems you should create a bug report (be sure to include the above info as well) https://bugzilla.opensuse.org
If you post all that information here, you can probably just post a link to this Forum thread in your bug report, but be sure to add at least a summary or top level description of your issue.
Does it work, if you unload the driver (sudo rmmod iwlwifi) [FONT=courier new]and load it again (sudo modprobe [FONT=courier new]iwlwifi)?
([FONT=courier new]if “[FONT=courier new]iwlwifi” is the name of the module)
A footnote: Use the Tumbleweed dvd to do an upgrade while on the wire (couldn’t figure out how to exit installer to reload iwlwifi firmware). After upgrade completed, and restarted, the iwlwifi driver was loaded automatically and is working fine.
For what it’s worth having the same issues with a Lenovo X1 and an Intel 8260. Booting the live cd, I can remove and reload the iwlwifi firmware and then it works. During the tumbleweed dvd install, it’s not seen so I have to use the same install-on-the-wire tecnique.
I have the same problem using a live usb of the latest tumbleweed in a HP zbook Studio G3 and . Unloading the driver (sudo rmmod iwlwifi) [FONT=courier new]and loading it again (sudo modprobe [FONT=courier new]iwlwifi)[/FONT][/FONT], turns on the wireless and works perfectly. I have not tried from an install on disk.
