I have an HP Omen ax250wm which I just upgraded the HDD to an SSD (which works awesomely out of the box), and I tried to upgrade my WiFi module to a WiFi 6 (802.11ax) module. I was told by a random person (before I purchased it) that the drivers came with the linux50+ kernel by way of
Over the past two days I've done everything I can think of to get it working correctly, and thus far have come up naught. My old WiFI module that came with the device is found without issue. Upon installing i3 and chrooting into the install
inxi -Fxxxz returns (and WiFi works fine);
Device-1: Intel Wireless 7265 driver: iwlwifi v: kernel port: 4000 bus ID: 04:00.00 [...]
Device-2: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet [...]
However, when I installed the new module, and took the same steps (installing via Manjaro Architect v0.9.26 UEFI), it was recognized as a device, but there was no driver loaded. I tried running;
mhwd -a pci free 0280
Warning: No config found for device: 0000:04:00.0 (0280:8086:2723) Network controller Intel Corporation
Again, as I was told by some random guy, the WiFi drivers should be included in the
wilwifi driver for the newer versions of the 5.0+ kernel, but despite trying on
linux51 I still can't seem to get this device to use
iwlwifi and thus load the proper driver.
Anyone have any suggestions or guidance? This hybrid laptop is a real pain when it comes to drivers.
