Hello fmagno,  

  


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I understand you are having issues with your device.



In order to better assist you, please provide the following:  



1. Can you provide more details about your issue?

2. Is this the original adapter that came pre-installed on your computer or did you change/install the adapter to this one?

3. Have you tried Ubuntu's latest version/kernel?

4. Have you checked this issue with MSI?

5. Are you using the Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6E AX1675 (i/s)?

6. Is the issue out of the box or did it use to work?

7. Can you take any pictures of the errors or the issue?




Best regards,

Hi Deivid,

 

Thanks for the quick reply. I found few hours ago that the issue is fixed on linux kernel 5.17 (which is, as of today, the linux-mainline package on arch). I expect that in few days a pacman update will sort out the issue for me.

 

Cheers,

FM
