but no wifi & no bluetooth @this stage !

~]$ rfkill list
0: hci0: Bluetooth
	Soft blocked: yes
	Hard blocked: no

What should I tell or do ?

That kernel is EOL. So the first thing you should probably do is upgrade/change it to an LTS kernel.

Look up the chipID:

Realtek Semiconductor RTL8852AE 802.11ax PCIe Wireless Network Adapter

Search the Chipset:

AUR (en) - Search Criteria: 8852AE

Build and install the package:

pamac build rtw89-dkms-git

and of course all headers of each installed kernel version for building the DKMS, example: linux510-headers


Wahhh, thank you both !

For the kernels I’m ashamed as I thought I did move to 515.

Now it’s fixed, I’ve 514 - 515 , theyr headers & rtw89 !

Wifi perfectly working
