WiFi driver issue latest update
Open, Needs More InfoPublic

Description

Never posted an issue here so here goes. I had an issue with the wifi not being enabled on the latest Solus update. Lenovo yoga 14. I'll report back with more info on hardware when I get a chance. Of there are version numbers needed let me know. I keep my system up to date so this would have been a recent change.

Performed a rollback and all is good for now.

Actually had to perform two rollbacks. First one the wifi card wasn't seen at all.

I used to use that card and I remember it being butchered by multiple Linux releases.

Could you try to upgrade and check your log for any errors relating to iwlwifi?

Edit: In the meantime, I would recommend using the LTS kernel, it usually fixes any WiFi issues with the current kernel until we get a new release fixing the bug.

The XXX0 chipsets have notoriously bad support on Linux, so I can't say I'm surprised. I agree that linux-lts might work better for you.
