WiFi doesn't work

I have Debian Jessie installed on my laptop. I can't get my WiFi to work. In Wicd Network Manager it says there are no available wireless networks.

Running lspci gives me:

Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 3160 (rev 83). 

I have tried everything I found on the internet such as editing /etc/network/interfaces, installing drivers, updating, installing other things, editing more .conf files, etc. I just can't connect to WiFi. Ethernet works but sometimes I will need to use WiFi. I have Debian Jessie installed on my laptop. I can't get my WiFi to work! Anyone have any ideas how to get my WiFi working?

Have you enabled the non-free repository and installed the firmware-iwlwifi package as described here: https://wiki.debian.org/iwlwifi ?

I see you said you have tried “everything” including “installing drivers” but I have no way to know if that includes the instructions on that page and specifically the firmware package.

If you have already tried everything as described on that link then I do not know, but at least we can rule that out.
