I figured rather than bashing my head on this and reading through partial answers they may be related that I might be able to get the correct info about my problem and learn something along the way.
Long story short, got a new worklaptop Dell latitude 5540 and running a wireless ax211. I installed the beta of 39 a few weeks back thinking all good I’ll do the upgrade to the official addition later it’s only a week plus I’m off on leave. Once I performed a system update wifi broke.
I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling via dnf the iwl drivers and linux-firmware, and renaming the iwlwifi-so-a0-gf-a0.pvnm in /lib/firmware and rebooting but to no avail.
Bluetooth module is still working.
My apologies if I’ve missed something, I appreciate your help.
Is there some way I can run an older code for the driver? I mean I think I made the media early October and it ran fine. I’ve just been going from 83 code all the way down the list but I’m assuming I’ll get to the point that it’s probably not supported.
I’ll get onto your recommendation to pass through as well. The workaround I think that will work is run 38 or see how the official 39 release goes although I’m assuming as well that anytime I perform a a system update I will just end up back at the same situation.
If it worked before the update to 39 then it may work with some tweaking.
In any case it would be wise to report the bug because if it worked before, but not now, it indicates a regression and the fix may be easier to find.
Please report exactly this into https://bugzilla.redhat.com/ against Fedora 39 linux-firmware package. You fixed your system, but all other systems with the same wifi are still broken. Also, your custom solution might break in the future because of some ABI incompatibility. It’s better even for you to have it fixed officially. Thanks!
