How to set up ax200 wifi driver

i replaced windows completely with fedora and cannot share my wifi connection with my phone

sudo rfkill unblock wlan #unblock
rfkill list wlan # check if unblocked

it doesn’t do anything for me

What does it output ?

Mine looks like this:
rfkill list wlan

1: phy0: Wireless LAN
	Soft blocked: yes
	Hard blocked: no

soft blocked means I switched it off by clicking on the wifi button on the right top menu.

ive never seen the wifi button on the top right menu sadly, also that command outputs nothing for me

I see system sees no wifi then.

would a reinstallation work?

Please start the live system and install sudo dnf install inxi
and use the command inxi -Fzx and past the output as pre formated </> text here.

So we can see what hardware you have.

At this point, I’d suggest trying the F38 Beta LiveCD (from getfedora). If wifi works in the install environment it should work after installation. If it doesn’t, can you please open a terminal window (in that environment) and run

journalctl -b -t kernel -g wifi

This should give something like this:

Mar 12 12:50:15 kernel: Intel(R) Wireless WiFi driver for Linux
Mar 12 12:50:15 kernel: iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)
Mar 12 12:50:16 kernel: iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: api flags index 2 larger than supported by driver
Mar 12 12:50:16 kernel: iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: TLV_FW_FSEQ_VERSION: FSEQ Version:

Mar 12 12:50:16 kernel: iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3 wlp0s20f3: renamed from wlan0

There may be more, but what we’re looking for first is the line like this:

Mar 12 12:50:16 kernel: iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: Detected Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX201 160MHz, REV=0x351

where it says REV=0x351.

The ax200 adapters in general should Just Work. The hardware revision will show us if, perhaps, this is a new version of the card which doesn’t have upstream Linux support yet.

There must be some hardware issue as 5.1 kernel first give the support for that card it was 3years back.
It should work without a issue. And i also have a device with same card and there was no issues.
Now i also suggest to look into uefi bios if your card blocked from there…in some devices it is possible to disable wifi card.
And what mattdm said download new 38 beta and start a live usb and see if wifi works and run those and give that feedback.
Also while you are in a live boot env give us the output of hw
With inxi -Fzx…<> for output.

And intel cards are gold standard when it comes to linux or bsd driver support intel give patches by themselves and even before windows.

sorry i cant get screenshots from my pc

Hmmm — this looks like it might be the same thing as

Have you look into bios uefi if card has been blocked from there.

Intel AX200 rev 1a. I don’t see any mention of the system you are using. This model was fussy about the PCIe bus configuration, so you should check the supporting

Updates are driven by Intel, and there have been a number of updates recently. Do you have any way to get network access (e.g., ethernet) to run updates? If not, one solution is to add a USB wifi adapter. They are not expensive and are very useful when you only have wifi and the built-in wifi fails. Some vendors, Pluggable is one) will tell you which products are supported under linux.

UPDATE: so i accidentally left my computer on over night and wifi FINALLY WORKS!

I don’t understand. What happened to get it fixed?

can you post journalctl -bchnage the flag accordingly if the repair boot was last boot or previous 2boot and so, lets see what happened and how it resolved.

there are a lot of topics reporting problems with that card. maybe dual-boot issue, maybe kernel issue…?

see Search results for 'ax200' - Fedora Discussion, see Wifi not working on brand new fedora install and Can't connect to wifi - No wifi device found? What's wrong with NetworkManager? (Fedora 37) - #23 by moe007

Start by disabling fast boot in Windows.

I dont know

i cant find anything from march 21st
