Model: New Dell XPS 15 7590
OS Version: Ubuntu 19.04
Kernel Version: 5.0.25/5.1.21 (I've tried all below on both versions, neither resolves the issue)
Ubuntu does not detect a Wi-Fi card attached to the computer, seemingly because of driver issues.
lspci says that the Network Controller is an
Intel Corporation Device 2723 (rev 1a), and
lshw -c network confirms that it is an Intel Corporation device that is marked
UNCLAIMED, implying a driver issue of some kind.
rfkill shows a working Bluetooth device, but doesn't list anything for Wi-Fi.
Interestingly, the Dell website says the card is a Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 (2x2), and it functions well on the Windows install in this machine (after installing appropriate Killer drivers).
I've scoured the internet for hours. What I've tried:
- Upgrading to Kernel version 5.1 (Problem Persisted)
- Upgrading to 5.2 (Persisted, later uninstalled 5.2)
- Forcing reinstall of
linux-modules-extra-$(uname -r), which errored out on all kernel versions. On 5.0, it fails to install
broadcom-sta-dkms, as the module, for some reason, tries to initialize installation for kernel version 5.2.8, despite uninstallation of 5.2. On 5.1 and 5.2,
aptcan't find the package.
ubuntu-restricted-extras. Fails for the same
broadcom-sta-dkmsissues as above.
- Everything else I've come across so far. Nothing has worked, and I am officially lost.
Any ideas? Is this Wi-Fi card just incompatible with current Linux?
