I would try the linux-modules-iwlwifi-* package associated with your kernel. It's in the Trisquel repositories.

As written on that page, "non-free firmware is required".

My bad. I realized the linux-modules-iwlwifi package is just there and does not have the actual modules.

I do not see the way to edit the post. I guess that's a feature that's been taken away.

It's not possible to edit the post after someone replies. I think that has always been the case?
