In launchpad it say that device [8086:2725] Subsystem [8086:4020] was added to linux-firmware 1.187.7. But lspic say mine is [1a56:1673], that I can not find anything in internet.


This is what windows see, it come installed on from factory.

Trying to enable iwlwifi, still no logs:

# lsmod | grep iwlwifi

# modinfo iwlwifi | grep -i version
srcversion:     C4766991DE91166408C39CE
vermagic:       5.11.0-34-generic SMP mod_unload modversions

# modprobe iwlwifi

# dmesg | grep -i iwl

Edit 3

I enable panic mode and clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git and copy into my /lib/firmware. Everything is the same with exception of

# lsmod | grep iwlwifi
iwlwifi               380928  0
cfg80211              892928  1 iwlwifi

Get this bounty!!!
