Can't access wi-fi

Post by aussie » 2020/03/24 07:53:40

Hello,

I built a new desktop computer with Gigabyte motherboard "X570 AORUS PRO WI-FI" . Wired connections are fine, but no wireless.
I tried installing wireless-tools and also checked that NetworkManager-wifi was installed. When I bring up NetworkManager no wireless is displayed.

[root@custom dan]# lshw | grep wireless
description: Bluetooth wireless interface
[root@custom dan]# lspci -nn | grep -i net
03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:2723] (rev 1a)
04:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation I211 Gigabit Network Connection [8086:1539] (rev 03)
I assume the first one is wi-fi controller

[root@custom dan]# ip link
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: enp4s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/ether b4:2e:99:3d:87:90 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
3: virbr0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state DOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/ether 52:54:00:fb:2e:f0 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
4: virbr0-nic: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast master virbr0 state DOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000
link/ether 52:54:00:fb:2e:f0 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
My laptop has a "wlan0" which seems to be missing here.

Can someone help me to get this working?

Not supported on CentOS 7 (yet). This is a new chipset from Intel, supported by the iwlwifi driver but it needs updating on CentOS 7 to add support. It's in CentOS 8 and also in the RHEL 7.8 beta kernel upstream but that is not yet GA so CentOS does not have it.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

Hi TrevorH,

Thanks for the information. I can wait a few weeks.

I have no idea how long 7.8 will be. It's not out for RHEL yet.
