I just build a desktop with Gigabyte Z390 Designare. I have set it up with a dual boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04.

I am able to connect to the Wifi in Windows. There is onboard wi-fi adapter with Intel CNVi 9560.

However, Ubuntu doesn't detect the network adapter.

I ran the code and I don't see the wireless adapter. Would appreciate some help so that I can start using Linux

  • Should also write the command you ran.

  • probably your ubuntu has no driver for the wifi. I guess you should get linux driver from the laptop/wifi manufacturer

This is your wireless device:

Network controller: Intel Corporation Device a370 (rev 10)

We note this error in the message log:

kernel BUG at /build/linux-vxxS7y/linux-4.15.0/drivers/net/wireless/intel/iwlwifi/pcie/rx.c:425!

Congratulations! You are the subject of an official bug! https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1809483

The similar bug report at Red Hat here suggests that the bug is fixed in kernel versions 4.17 et seq: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1574679

I suggest that you download and try the live session for Ubuntu 18.10 which uses kernel version 4.18 to see if the bug is present. If not and, as I suspect, the wireless is working as expected, install it.

  • Tried it on 18.10 and it worked. Will proceed to upgrade to it
