[SOLVED] TP-Link AX3000 (Archer TX3000E) PCIe WiFi card not working on Refracta

I recently purchased a "TP-Link WiFi 6 AX3000 PCIe WiFi Card (Archer TX3000E)" from Amazon and installed it in my desktop computer. My current OS is Beowulf-based Refracta. I installed firmware-iwlwifi from Beowulf (Buster) backports, but the card does not appear to be working.

Here is some (hopefully) relevant information:

Re: [SOLVED] TP-Link AX3000 (Archer TX3000E) PCIe WiFi card not working on Refracta

Which iwlwifi and kernel versions are you using? This is quite a new wifi card compared to beowulf. You may need a backported kernel as well or even an upgrade to Chimaera.

I have a working AX200 card (earlier than yours, which is AX210) on  Chimaera. My ifwlwifi is version 20210315-3.

This is from my dmesg:

dmesg |grep iwlwifi

I note that I finally get my slightly older card running on iwlwifi-cc-a0-62.ucode, which is a higher number than any your system tries to load: iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0-59.ucode down to iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0-39.ucode.

Re: [SOLVED] TP-Link AX3000 (Archer TX3000E) PCIe WiFi card not working on Refracta

Having checked your AX210 is a wi-fi 6E card, while my AX200 is only wi-fi 6.

The AX210 is only supported by linux kernels >= 5.10, i.e. the standard Chimaera kernel.

https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/use … rs/iwlwifi

Nevertheless, even though you say its Beowulf based Linux refracta 5.10.0-0.deb10.16-amd64 is presumably a 5:10 kernel.

Re: [SOLVED] TP-Link AX3000 (Archer TX3000E) PCIe WiFi card not working on Refracta

Hi Marjorie,

Thank you for your replies. I tried this workaround (hack) and had partial success:

https://notes.prkr.ca/2021/10/Intel-AX2 … Mint-20-2/

I found that here:
https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?p=2092127

After renaming the PNVM file and rebooting, there was no change. However, I then decided to run update-initramfs and reboot again. After doing so, I could see two local network devices -- the router and a wireless printer. Unfortunately, attempting to connect to the router was unsuccessful.

I will probably not spend much more time on this since I've been planning to install Chimaera. I would already be running it except for the fact that something urgent recently got in the way.

I get this error as well, but the system functions fine.

firmware: failed to load iwl-debug-yoyo.bin (-2)

aparently only required for debugging, not config.

glenn@GamesBox ~ $ lsmod | grep iwlwifi

iwlwifi               360448  1 iwlmvm

Re: [SOLVED] TP-Link AX3000 (Archer TX3000E) PCIe WiFi card not working on Refracta

The AX210 needs kernel >5.10 and the firmware to match but it has had a lot of problems, or at least a lot of threads about it over at the Arch forums. Try searching there for more details. I didn't bother with those threads myself 'cos I don't have that hardware.

Thank you everyone for your replies. Hopefully, installing Chimaera will solve this problem. If not, I am willing to go as far as installing Daedalus or Ceres.

Re: [SOLVED] TP-Link AX3000 (Archer TX3000E) PCIe WiFi card not working on Refracta

I did a test installation of Chimaera-based Refracta on an external laptop HDD. I couldn't get the Wi-Fi card working, so I then tried a test installation of Refracta based on Daedalus. After enabling Wi-Fi using connman, I was able to see and connect to the router. However, internet access was still not working. I then had the idea to disable the onboard LAN (wired Ethernet adapter) in the BIOS, and after I did that I had working wireless internet.

Based on my experience with Daedalus, I decided to try Chimaera again. This time, after installing the firmware packages, I installed linux-image-amd64 and linux-headers-amd64 from Chimaera backports. I then rebooted, disabled the onboard LAN again, and when the system came back up I had working wireless internet. Yay!
