I'm struggling to get all the hardware on my ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming to work; at the moment Wifi is bugging me: The board has Intel's Wi-Fi 6 AX200 chip on it, for which Intel's list of drivers offers a iwlwifi-cc-46.3cfab8da.0.tgz, which contains iwlwifi-cc-a0-46.ucode. The package linux-firmware (20191108) placed a file with the same name in /lib/firmware and so I assumed that the kernel (built with CONFIG_IWLWIFI=M) could pick it up when needed. Yet iwconfig doesn't list the device.

lspci shows that the iwlwifi module is in charge:

Code:
05:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Device 2723 (rev 1a)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 0084
        Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 145
        Memory at f7800000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 3
        Capabilities: [d0] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
        Capabilities: [40] Express Endpoint, MSI 00
        Capabilities: [80] MSI-X: Enable- Count=16 Masked-
        Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting
        Capabilities: [14c] Latency Tolerance Reporting
        Capabilities: [154] L1 PM Substates
        Kernel modules: iwlwifi


But apparently, it couldn't enable the device:

Code:
$ dmesg | grep 05:00
[    0.156203] pci 0000:05:00.0: [8086:2723] type 00 class 0x028000
[    0.156248] pci 0000:05:00.0: reg 0x10: [mem 0xf7800000-0xf7803fff 64bit]
[    0.156416] pci 0000:05:00.0: PME# supported from D0 D3hot D3cold
[    0.610515] pci 0000:05:00.0: Adding to iommu group 22
[    2.897808] iwlwifi 0000:05:00.0: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)
[    2.932294] iwlwifi: probe of 0000:05:00.0 failed with error -110


I can't find any details on that error code. Any idea what went wrong?

There is no line saying Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi?
Did you follow the iwlwifi guide?
According to https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi?s[]=ax200#firmware you also need
Code:
<M>       Intel Wireless WiFi MVM Firmware support

Solved, Windows was at fault. :evil:

@charles17: Thanks for your effort. Yes, I followed the guide and no, the driver didn't show up. Now it does. :D
