I’ve got a laptop with an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 wireless card. I use GNOME and am connected to my router (either Wi-Fi or ethernet) but I fail to connect to get an internet connection. GNOME tells me that I am connected but (for both cases) on top of the “connection symbol” a question mark appears. From wireless “DOT” wiki “DOT” kernel “DOT” org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi#firmware) I downloaded the corresponding tgz-file which contains ucode-files like iwlwifi-Qu-b0-hr-48.ucode etc. All of those I already have (/had) in my “/lib/firmware” folder. So I am wondering what makes iwlwifi not select the correct ucode file(s) and how can I fix it to select the right firmware?
# dmesg | grep "iwlwifi" prints among others the lines (only messages):
... Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-QuZ-a0-hr-b0-56.ucode failed with error -2 api flags index 2 larger than supported by driver TLV_FW_FSEQ_VERSION: FSEQ Version: 18.104.22.168 Found debug destination: EXTERNAL_DRAM Found debug configuration: 0 loaded firmware version 55.d9698065.0 QuZ-a0-hr-b0-55.ucode op_mode iwlmvm Direct firmware load for iwl-debug-yoyo.bin failed with error -2 Detected Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX201 160MHz, REV=0x354 base HW address: 9c:29:76:0a:be:af ...
I am not sure if it has an impact but I feel like the problem could be connected to the docking station (Dell WD19TB) which I am not sure if it has a network card. I think (I’m not 100% sure - did not pay attention) that this problem appeared after I plugged in the docking station for the first time after installation and after the next reboot it could not connect anymore. The cable connection always went through the docking station as the laptop has no LAN port.
I’d be really happy if you could help me with this issue. Thanks in advance!
EDIT: What I also tried was setting up an arch usb, boot it, connect to wifi and chroot into my environment where I then had a connection.
EDIT 2: Ok sorry, I am too tired I guess. I forgot to mention that the command
# modinfo iwlwifi does return quite a few firmware files but not the seemingly needed ones with …-48 as posted above.
