No Wifi Device found - New Laptop


I recently got a new laptop: Specifically the G713 Asus Rog Strix.

Installed the latest Manjaro Plasma image on it and ran all updates. However, I’m not getting any wifi connections to show up (cabled connection works).

“nmcli wifi rescan” returns “No Wi-Fi device found”.

In mhwd I can find mostly wireless things related to USB only.

lscpi -v shows me:

Welcome back to the forum :wink:

For people to be able to research and help you, they would need to know the device and vendor id’s of your card…
Maybe try giving the output that contains those info also, fe.

inxi -an

Small Additional Info:
The above is on the 5.15 LTS Kernel. I did try on the 6.0.8 and it didn’ work either

Could you by any chance just copy and paste the text instead, because:

  1. The image is blurry
  2. It helps people to be able to copy paste while researching info.

I personally pipe the output of commands to xclip :wink:

Your device seems to be supported badly by Linux and also Windows. Do you have the option to change it?

You could try loading the driver manually:

sudo modprobe mt7921e

Well, theoretically I could send it back and try to find something else with a similar price-value-proposition. I´d prefer making it work though =D

What would I do after I load the driver manually?

See MediaTek MT7922 802.11ax PCI Express Wireless Network Adapter which says it is supported in kernels 5.17 and newer…

You could see if the interface at least shows up properly using fe. ip link i think…

So at least it’s supposed to be working, that’s good.

sudo modprobe mt7921e
ip link
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: enp3s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/ether a0:36:bc:65:ef:4e brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

I ran those two tasks but didn’t get anything new out of it.

2 reboots later, for some random reason it started working.

That’s what I meant by bad support.

Good for you!
