The AR8161 ethernet will need an updated kernel, but that's supported in the current one.

Your wlan is already supported in our last release kernel, you just need to supply the required firmware via firmware-realtek, in the worst case you'll have to reload the wireless module (modprobe -r rtl8723ae ; modprobe rtl8723ae), so the wlan should be the easiest option to update the system.

Thanks for your answer slh. With eth0 enabled I could do the required d-u. Any way the wlan is behaving strange.
I did the modprobe dance. But wlan is not coming up -at least not in a useful manner.
It's behaving strange.
here's what I've did after d-u
      Code:

apt-get install firmware-realtek
modprobe -r rtl8723ae
modprobe rtl8723ae
ifup wlan0

ifup wlan0 results in an error:
"RTNETLINK answers: File exists"
Some googling didn't help much.
When running ceni for wlan in a shell within the graphical interface I get the message popping up:
wlan0 disconnected
wlan0 connected to <ROUTERNAME>
If I interrupt the ceni at this very moment - and remove the cable - I have the following situation:
I can access the local network and the computers within.
I can access the new computer from another machine with ssh.
I can not access anything in the outside world.
I tried that several times and it's kind of nasty. I double checked entries in /etc/network/interfaces for DNS and other - to no avail. If you need any information for helping me it would be nice.
The cable is not an option in the long term. I need to place the new machine somewhere else and not beside the router.
Thanks in acvance.

After latest restart I am getting a different errormessage when trying to
      Code:

ifup wlan0


      Code:

wpa-supplicant: /sbin/wpa_supplicant daemon failed to start
run-parts: /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wpasupplicant exited with return code 1
Failed to bring up wlan0

If you need anythin to help me with this I gladly support you with more output.

Now I am getting the other error 'file exists' when running ceni to the end.

Maybe it would help if you showed your/etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wpasupplicant file.

This has been resolved via IRC (routing issues with both interfaces being active at the same time).

Thanks to slh who helped me with a routing issue everything went fine.
After installing from ISO I installed atheros firmware drivers and was able to access internet via cable.
So I could do a dist upgrade and almost everything was fine.
The only issue (as far as I know until now) is that I am havin no sound. Will make a seperate thread here.
