Is there any idea when Intel will have an AX200 driver for linux PCIe 4x, 8x and 16x slots?
I have several Intel ax200 based network cards but they will not work in anything but a PCIe x1 slot under Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Budgie or FreeBsd. Unfortunately quite a few of my computers don't have a PCIe x1 slot so none of the many existing iwl family drivers work.
As pointed out in the thread https://community.intel.com/t5/Wireless/Intel-AX-200-network-card-not-working-under-Linux-Mint/m-p/1... this is an issue common across many different versions of Linux and makes of motherboards.
This is not particular to Linux; it happens with Windows as well. AFAIK, it is a hardware limitation of the PCIe carrier card design and there is nothing that Intel can do in the drivers to make up for it. I would also note that there are other PCIe x1 cards, which have nothing to do with networking or wireless, that also will not work in x4/x8/x16 slots. Bottom line, don't expect a miracle here; it is unlikely to happen.
Can Intel at least get those folk selling cards using the AX200 to note the issue in their merchandising or produce a guide to any ax200 cards that might work in the x4/8/16 slots?
