OK. I solved it. The solution is to get the jessie-backports .deb file and install it in the "debian-8" template VM:
Go here https://packages.debian.org/jessie-backports/firmware-iwlwifi Then here https://packages.debian.org/jessie-backports/all/firmware-iwlwifi/download Copy the file to debian-8 run dpkg -i firmware-iwlwifi_20160110-1-bpo8+1_all.deb Solved -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
