Ubuntu – Unable to get wifi adapter working – clean 19.04 install – network unclaimed


My wifi card is an Intel® Wireless-AX200 (802.11/a/b/g/n/ac/ax), Bluetooth® 5, and bluetooth is working. I've tried following various guides, however these drivers are apparently yet to make it into the kernel.

Their product brief states linux is supported:


And yet their driver page has no listing for them:

I'm running kernel version Linux 5.0.0-13-generic, any help is greatly appreciated.

EDIT: results of lspci -nnk | grep 00280 -A3:

  • According to these articles, support for this card is in kernel 5.1.*.


    "The product page does list Linux support that comes as little surprise these days. In fact, back in January we wrote about Linux support for these new Intel adapters within the "IWLWIFI" driver and that enablement is now present in the Linux 5.1 kernel."


    "The Intel WiFi Linux driver "IWLWIFI" will see support for various new WiFi adapters with the upcoming Linux 5.1 kernel cycle."

    These kernels can be downloaded from https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/, or by using ukuu $12, from https://teejeetech.in/ukuu/
