Hi there,

My Intel AX210 is crashing after enabling  802.11ax / WiFi 6 mode on my ASUS AX86U.It works fine otherwise. Speeds are around 400-500Mbps on a 1Gb connection. I am attaching some basic info here. Happy to share additional info if required

svarkey@svarkey-Precision-7760:/tmp$ uname -a
Linux svarkey-Precision-7760 5.13.0-1014-oem #18-Ubuntu SMP Wed Sep 22 17:36:11 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Hello mailsanchu, 


In order to proceed, please try and provide the following:



1. What is the brand and model name of your router?

2. Did the issue appear on windows 10/11? Or is it only limited to Linux as you mentioned?

3. Run the following commands and send us the outcome:  

  • modinfo iwlwifi > If there is no output, then the module isn’t installed this is the distribution installation issue.  
  • lsmod | grep iwlwifi > If the result is empty, the driver hasn't been loaded. Most likely to be a distribution issue.  
  • To verify, please type: dmesg | grep iwlwifi > If the result is empty, the driver wasn’t initialized and this is a distribution issue. If there is a result populated, proceed with the next step.   
  • dmesg | grep “no suitable firmware found!” > If the result is not empty, it means you don't have a suitable FW (API mentioned in the dmesg).  
  • Please visit here: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi for supported FW, or here https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/ for the latest versions.  

4. If the above steps don't work, collect the debug data:  

  • Type: dmesg | grep ASSERT   


If the output is empty, please follow this wiki: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi/debugging to extract dmesg and trace-cmd.  


If the output has value, please collect it from the wiki FW dump too.

Deivid,

Firmware is working correctly for 2.4/5Ghz. So it is a firmware issue.

Does your firmware support 6GHz?

Hello mailsanchu, 


Based on the research perform, I would like you to try and provide the following:



1. Update to the latest firmware version 67 and check if the issue persists.

2. Check with DELL and confirm that the latest BIOS is installed.

3. Check that the AP is using the latest firmware.

4. You mentioned randomly firmware crashes during data streaming while connecting to Asus AP at 5 GHz in 20 MHz bandwidth, but 2.4 GHz works fine?

5. Does the firmware crashes after "x" hours of streaming?

Hello mailsanchu, 



In this case, you need to check with DELL or with your Linux distributor (or where you downloaded the operating system) for firmware and instructions to update it.


Intel does not have a Linux driver nor provides steps or drivers/firmware.
