Hello: I just install -current on my Honor Magicbook 16 and Intel WiFi 6 AX210 not working. I have dual boot - Windows and Slackware-current. In Windows wi-fi work fine. On Slackware I don't even see it's interface at all.

Just as an educated guess.

Did you try the latest kernel and the "official binary" driver to see if it works at all?

If the the new kernel is enough, you would just have to wait for a bit.

You possibly may need to get a new kernel or at least the newest "linux-kernel-firmware" from any of the up to date Mirrors.

I'm running Current with a 5.11.11 kernel

Code:
 # dmesg | grep iwl
[    3.970358] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)

Sorry but I can't recall the oldest kernel that worked, probably a 5.10.x

I have AX200 and worked like a charm, but that is my seconds card. First card BT was working but not WIFI part. I read in tomshardware that AX201 require intel CPU or wont work. I don't know is that is true or not. My card is AX200 and Im with AMD CPU. Some times if you run dual boot with windows 10, win put card in deep sleep mode and linux is unable to wake it up. I read for some iwspy command that can reset this sleep but it does not work for me. I start windows, cards was wake up and connect and then restart the pc.

That is true, the AX201 will only work with intel platforms. Source

EDIT: It looks like AX210 should be supported on 5.10+. Source

Hello. Thanks everyone for the advice. I report: when I had the kernel 5.10.28, bluetooth and wi-fi did not work for me. After installing the kernel 5.11.12, the bluetooth worked, but the wi-fi did not work as before. Helped deleting the file /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0.pnvm - Source.
