Did you install the linux-firmware package?

I’m on Manjaro… It comes pre-installed. /lib/firmware contains all the iwlwifi ucode anyway. As you can see in dmesg log, iwliwifi is attempting to load.

After searching around, maybe your device is too new and still unsupported by the drivers. This post indicates that from kernel 5.14 there might be support.

Just installed 5.14-rc7 and still nothing /: same error in dmesg.

According to the link from @mithrial you have to add this here and compile the kernel yourself again.

If you can’t do that, then sit down, take a cup of tea and wait until it reaches the mainline kernel.

I see. I don’t really feel comfortable with compiling and running a custom kernel myself as it it my main machine. It appears on Linux github, 5.14 has been released however on the kernal tab in settings only rc7 is available. However, even looking at that exact file on github, I don’t see that patch applied on the full release.
