Hello EugeneSt,


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.


I am sorry you are having issues with your Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX101, I will be glad to assist you.


Please provide the following information:


  • What is the model of your Mini PC?
  • Is this the original adapter that came pre-installed in your system, or have you changed/installed a new adapter recently?


As well, Linux drivers are not provided by Intel, but by the community. If the adapter is working fine on Windows, it is possible there is a driver/kernel issue.


Best regards,


Steven G.

Hi @Steven_Intel ,

 

Thank you for your reply!

I have: Beeline Mini-S12 PRO with Intel Alder Lake N100

With preinstalled WinOS Wifi worked correctly, but I would like to use Ubuntu.

In specifications of AX101 is listed support of Linux. So my expectations that Intel ensure users possible usage on Linux systems and support. Or I misunderstanding this?

 

 

Best regards,
Eugene.

Thank you for your reply.


When you run the # lspci command, are you able to see the network controller identified? If not, please try checking the wireless card is peroperly integrated (if applicable).


Also, please gather a system report using the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) for Linux (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/18895/26735/intel-system-support-utility-for-the-linux-operating-system.html?).

Very much the same problem here ... with a Belink U59 : Jasper Lake N5105 and AX101

I'd also note that the "Linux Support for Intel Wireless" drivers page lists the AX210, AX201, AX200 and many other cards as supported by various iwlwifi firmware but the AX101 is curiously absent.  Why is that?

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005511/wireless.html

This looks to be a common problem associated with the 12th Gen processor Intel N95, N100, or i3-N305 based mini PCs.

 

I would hesitated to buy a computer with these Intel processors until the Linux driver support for the corresponding AX101 wireless is resolved.

 

Just like EugeneSt, I'm stuck with not buying a Beelink mini PC in the EQ line until the AX101 wireless support issue is resolved.

 

I think this is a problem in the Linux kernel code line, so can somebody reach out to the Intel developers working on Linux to ensure the code changes needed to support AX101 is merged into the release branch, or can confirm which version of Linux has the AX101 update merged into Linux?

@EugeneSt,

 

I found a interim solution, which unfortunately will cost you more money

But at least your Mini S Pro will have wireless connectivity.

 

There is support in Ubuntu and its derivatives, such as LinuxMint for this USB wifi adapter.

I've used this in Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04 and 22.04 and Ubuntu or LinuxMint, mostly LinuxMint, and it works out of box and these 2 Linux distros would automatically discover it.

https://www.amazon.com/Panda-Ultra-150Mbps-Wireless-Adapter/dp/B00762YNMG/

 

Until Intel's Linux developer merge the code to support AX101 into Linux kernel,

I don't know of a good solution. I can see that 1 can compile their own kernel with very minor code changes,

to get AX101 working, but I don't want to do that as the next Linux patch would break the change yet again.

Thank you!
I bought hdmi dummy plug and put it on my “server” box connected via Ethernet. Media server still running on raspberry-pi. The solution was on kernel, but looks like it was fkedup last summer… expecting soon fix.

@Steven_Intel :

 

There was a recent Linux firmware release, so I updated to that to see if the AX101 issue has been resolved.

 

Short answer is NO.

 

I'll try again when LinuxMint 21.2 is released in Summer 2023, in the meantime, folks with AX101 is out of luck on Ubuntu or Ubuntu-based distros, most likely Debian also has the same lack of AX101 support issue.

Hello EugeneSt,


Many thanks for your patience on this matter.


Since the Intel AX101 is a newer product, the Linux drivers may be still Work In Progress in distros. The AX101 Bluetooth should be working by using the mainline kernel ver. 6.2+ from kernel.org.


You may also consider installing the AX101 Wi-Fi from backport-iwlwifi, or wait for the Wi-Fi to be fully ready and released to mainline kernel later.


Let me know if you have any concern.


Best regards,


Steven G.

Hi @Steven_Intel ,

 

Thank you for your reply!

It means officially AX101 is not supporting Linux, right? so specs need to be fixed. 

 

Best regards,
Eugene.

Many thanks for your response.


Since the drivers may still be in WIP, we can consider there is no support for the moment.

Linux support for AX101 is available with kernel version 6.3 or higher.

If you're using Ubuntu or LinuxMint, you can install the mainline installer to update Linux kernel to 6.4 which is the current stable release.

I don't think it works on the current stable release of Ubuntu which is 22.04.3. 22.04.3 has Kernel 6.2.

It works on Ubuntu-24.04 which has Kernel 6.5 and is expected to release in March 2024 on my Chuwi GemiBook Plus.

-caz

P.S. Bluetooth does not work on Ubuntu-24.04/Chuwi GemiBook Plus.

dmesg reports

[ 67.654147] Bluetooth: hci0: Device revision is 2
[ 67.654153] Bluetooth: hci0: Secure boot is enabled
[ 67.654155] Bluetooth: hci0: OTP lock is enabled

[ 67.654156] Bluetooth: hci0: Debug lock is disabled
[ 67.654157] Bluetooth: hci0: Minimum firmware build 1 week 10 2014
[ 67.654159] Bluetooth: hci0: Bootloader timestamp 2019.40 buildtype 1 build 38
[ 67.654737] Bluetooth: hci0: Failed to load Intel firmware file intel/ibt-0040-1050.sfi (-2)
[ 67.656073] Bluetooth: hci0: Reading supported features failed (-56)
[ 67.656105] Bluetooth: hci0: Error reading debug features
[ 67.657010] Bluetooth: hci0: Failed to read MSFT supported features (-56)

So its kernel 6.5 has not included its firmware while it has WiFi firmware.

Bluetooth works on Ubuntu-24.04/Chuwi GemiBook Plus by doing follows.

cd /usr/lib/firmware/intel
sudo ln -s ibt-1040-4150.ddc.zst ibt-0040-1050.ddc.zst
sudo ln -s ibt-1040-4150.sfi.zst ibt-0040-1050.sfi.zst

 

You will have followings in dmesg.

 ...
68.085274] Bluetooth: hci0: Found device firmware: intel/ibt-0040-1050.sfi
.....
[ 69.497871] Bluetooth: hci0: Found Intel DDC parameters: intel/ibt-0040-1050.ddc
