Some users have expressed a desire to use the Killer AX1650 in Debian-based Linux. If your version of Linux does not support the Killer Wireless AX1650 at install, and you are using Ubuntu 16.04 or later, or another version of Debian Linux, you can use this guide to backport the drivers from the latest version of Ubuntu/Debian, enabling the Killer AX1650 in 16.04 or later. We have confirmed that this will result in wireless connectivity in Ubuntu 16.04 with the Killer Wireless AX1650.
