I see that there is a linux driver for wifi 6, i have uploaded it onto my raspberry pi kernel 5.10 but i only see freq up to 6.1GHz. Is there a specific driver for wifi 6E on linux that needs to come out?

 

sincerely,

Hello Jwchao, 

  


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   



I would like to let you know that our drivers are generic and meant for Windows, to get the appropriate drivers/firmware I recommend you to check with your Linux provider to get the latest updates.


Also, you will find the following links helpful to address your inquiry:

Im on a raspberry pi, looks like i need to find a way to just get kernel 5.11, right now its 5.10 stable, to have right iw driver support. Unless I am mistaken.

Hello Jwchao, 



In this case, if you have no issues with the device we do not recommend performing any kind of updates, however, if you need to perform an update I recommend you to get in contact with the operating system support team to get compatibility information and/or get the latest drivers/firmware.
