I am not highly computer literate.
I have an MSI MEG-Ace x570 Mobo with built in wifi, I also have a Ubit Wifi card. They are both AX200 Wifi 6 Intel cards and i have downloaded the firmware and updated my lib/firmware files under the direction of a plethora of suggestions.
I have read many posts here, here and here in regard to this problem as well as others that are similar, but ultimately this is working intermittently at best, and with no knowledge of what solved/caused the problem each time. By this I mean I can download and install drivers in the lib/firmware and reboot and it doesn’t work. Then do nothing and reboot again and it works, then open windows (which always sees the drivers) play games for 2 days, then reboot Linux and it doesn’t work. Then I reboot Ubuntu and it still doesnt work then two days later it works, then i reboot straight to Ubuntu and it doesnt work. Doesn’t work means I get the no wifi-adapter found. This is usually coupled with a ‘network UNCLAIMED’ message from:
lshw -C net
So what I have done currently is plug in an ethernet cable, this seems fairly stable, however due to location of the desktop in question the ethernet connecton is from a laptop acting as a WiFi –> Ethernet router.
I would very much appreciate any troubleshooting assistance and then a clear understanding of what the steps are doing such that I can see what the problem is. It is curious to me that Windows just works, i.e. not a hardware problem. Also that the only success I have in seeing my built in MoBo Wifi is when the other WiFi card is plugged in, i.e. I either have two WiFi options or no options.
If the above doesn’t constitute a ‘proper’ question then my question is this.
‘Why is my Intel 6 AX200 WiFi adapter built in to MSI Meg-ACE x570 MoBo not working, unless I install a separate Ubit Intel 6 AX200 Wifi card, at which point both work intermittently?’
