Hello @Albert_R_Intel ,

 

From Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX101 Product Specifications: 

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/203014/intel-wifi-6-ax101.html

It's said Linux is Supported. however there is no way to get the driver in the following two links:

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

https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi

 

I got  "Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX101" preinstalled in a Mini PC.

I installed "Fedora Linux 37 (Workstation Edition)", the "Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX101" failed to work.

 

Attached "fedora SSU.txt", "lspci.txt", "inxi.txt".

A AX101 User

AX101, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.


I will do further research on this matter, in order to confirm if we can provide the driver you are looking for or if there are other options for you to be able to download it.


As soon as I get any updates, I will post all the details on this thread.

Hello AX101, I just received an update on this matter.


After reviewing the case, it is important to mention that AX101 driver/firmware is available in the newer (and stable) kernels (e.g. kernel 6.1 or 6.2) to obtain the latest firmware version 72.

Hello @Alberto_R_Intel ,

 

Upgrade to 6.3.0-0.rc2.20230314gtfc89d7fb.223.vanilla.fc37.x86_64, the AX101 wireless card still does not working.

There are some message from dmesg:

Please see detail in attached log.

Hello AX101, I just received an update on this matter.


After reviewing the case, it is important to mention that the Intel® AX101 card is a newer wireless product. Based on that, what we suggest for this scenario, will be to install the latest AX101 firmware from backport-iwlwifi.

I am having the very same issue with a Debian based system. Did you ever find a driver for the "mini" pc. I feel I purchased the same device as you.

thanks,
