This took me a bit of research to figure out so I thought I’d share this guide for installing the wireless drivers on Linux.
This will require a computer with an existing internet connection or for you to connect to the network via a USB->Ethernet adapter.
This guide assumes you are using the Intel 6E Wireless chip sold with the Framework laptop, though this will work for other Intel wireless chips as well.
- Go to the Intel Linux Driver Downloads page.
- Download the appropriate driver for your card. The one that comes with the Framework laptop is the Wi-Fi 6 AX210. Don’t mind that it is lacking the E.
- Download and extract the files in the tarball to your downloads folder or other location.
- Open your terminal and cd into the directory containing the files you just extracted.
- Run this command. Replace XX with the version number of your driver (or just use tab autofill):
sudo cp iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0-XX.gcode /lib/firmware
- Reboot your laptop.
When you sign in next time, you should now notice the Wi-Fi symbol in your system tray. Connect to your wireless network.
If you have any issues, please reply to this thread and I’ll do my best to help you.
