Thinkpad P1 G2 Wifi


Mar 30, 2015

I have a fresh installation of Proxmox V6 running on a new Thinkpad P1 G2 machine. But at the moment I do not have WIFI capabilities. I know my Wifi chipset is
designated as AX200 from Intel and that my current kernel 5.0.15-1-pve is not aware of it. What are my options at this point besides wait for a more advanced proxmox kernel ?

Whenever I've been in a pinch I'll stick in an older USB wifi adapter that is supported until the kernel is updated to a point where it has the new Wifi adapter supported. Not the best option but a lot easier than compiling your own kernel and dealing with unsupported (from a Proxmox perspective) software.
Not sure it it helps, but try the 5.3 kernel.

> apt install pve-kernel-5.3
