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.
Type or copy and paste the following commands in a Terminal, one line at a time, pressing Enter after each command.
$ sudo apt update $ sudo apt-get install git $ sudo apt-get install build-essential $ git clone https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/iwlwifi/backport-iwlwifi.git $ cd backport-iwlwifi $ sudo make defconfig-iwlwifi-public $ sudo make -j4 $ sudo make install
Additionally, you will need to ensure you have the latest iwlwifi firmware:
$ git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git $ cd linux-firmware $ sudo cp iwlwifi-* /lib/firmware/
If the WiFi Adapter still doesn’t appear, try entering the following in your Terminal:
$ sudo apt-get update --fix-missing $ sudo apt-get upgrade $ reboot
Once you have done this, you should be able to connect to your wireless access point!
