I recently purchased a new laptop which features an Intel Wireless-AX200 Networking device for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. I installed elementary OS 5.0 "Juno" along with the latest stable linux kernel (5.1.1), as I've heard that it should come with support for the aforementioned networking device

However, I cannot seem to find any drivers related to the device, either within /lib/firmware or within the 5.1.1 source (looking for anything prepended with "iwlwifi").

Looking through lspci reveals the following devices, none of which appear to be a wireless or bluetooth device:

45:00.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation JHL7540 Thunderbolt 3 USB Controller [Titan Ridge 2C 2018] (rev 06)

Has anyone been able to locate these aforementioned drivers within the 5.1 or 5.1.1 source? I've also just emailed linuxwifi@intel.com, and can update this post with their response as it comes in.

UPDATE

I received a response from Intel. The driver itself has not made it into the kernel, therefore they suggested using their backport driver (which has now made wi-fi accessible on my laptop [mid-2019 Razer Blade])

  • Hi Jon. That last bit is an answer, so you should add it as an answer to your question. Not as part of your question. – Faheem Mitha May 15 at 13:34

According to the product page it's a pre-certified solution and the driver has not been published yet.

Even Linus's Development branch doesn't reveal anything so I'm assuming that at the time of this writing, it's not Linux compatible yet and the article you're referring to uses marketing speak for: We'll be adding that soon...
