I have an uncommon hardware configuration. I'm running an AMD APU r7 3700U Vega 10. Problem-solving is keeping me busy, but I'm still a beginner. I'm currently tethered to my phone and when I boot Ubuntu it's a dice roll whether the wifi adapter is recognized or not (as well as whether I have audio?)


I've identified my wireless card as an Intel 8265/8275 I installed Mainline to update the kernel to 5.8 - no dice so far.

I'm trying to follow these instructions:



I'm trying to figure out what the module is but I have no idea?

Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 4.6+

iwlwifi-8265-ucode-22.361476.0.tgz - I think this is what I'm looking for?

Here's a wireless diagnostic that I found googling around:

$ sudo dmesg | grep iwl

  • This device should work without any problems unless it is blocked by rfkill. Instead of installing mainline kernels that can cause some more trouble, check rfkill and dmesg. – Pilot6 Oct 1 '20 at 19:10
  • Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3; rfkill list terminal command. – Pilot6 Oct 1 '20 at 19:11
  • I edited in the output Pilot6. The dmesg output is enormous as well, do you want that too? – Wist Oct 1 '20 at 19:41
  • Run dmesg | grep iwl. That will be short. Also is it a dual boot with Windows? – Pilot6 Oct 1 '20 at 20:10
  • And try to boot with an Ubuntu kernel, not a mainline. – Pilot6 Oct 1 '20 at 20:12

Disable Windows Fast Start feature and drivers should work.
