NUC10i7FNH wireless AX201 is recognized as Intel 9462 adapter


get a new NUC10i7FNH, everything works wells except no wireless


deepin/debian distro, kernel 



wireless shows unclaimed, the actual adapter should be AX201, but system gives me AC 9462.

i've disabled bluetooth, wired LAN and various functions in BIOS, rebooted several times but nothing helped.

driver seems to be loaded, but the model simply is incorrect

i also tested on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, same thing that the adapter is recognized as 9462

after installing backport dkms from ubuntu, there was wifi icon shown on the top bar, but the system started to freeze randomly.

i struggled to select the home wifi and got connected, the system became even more unstable, hangs in 2-3 seconds every time i turn on or restart the computer...

any suggestion? thanks

NUC10i7FNH comes wot AX201 wireless adapter which is soldered down to the board (see the attached image). I suggest that you remove the bottom cover and the SSD and check what adapter you have installed.

You may try to install Windows (including the Chipset Devices Software and the wireless drivers) and see what is detected. I believe that there is a problem with your Linux O.S.






Thanks Leon for your quick reply.

i opened NUC and confirm the card is AX201D2W.


but lucky my problem is solved after i did the following:

reinstalled deepin (basically a debian distro)

further disable turbor and hyperthreading in BIOS, reduce RAM from 64G to 32G, unplug LAN cable, take out SSD and push the wifi wire (which penetrates through below the SSD) to the corner and put back the SSD.


i can confirm AX201 is reported as 9462 by the OS. yet dmesg shows the correct adapter model.
