AX210 Driver Issue

I am attempting to get Intel’s AX210NGW wifi card working on some new Orin Nanos that I have. I know that this card isn’t officially supported at this time, but I have previously gotten it working on a different Orin Nano and was hoping someone might be able to help me figure out what I’m doing differently.

So far I have followed the processes described by my carrier board manufacturer (Jetpack, AX210). The driver install is adding Intel’s driver to /lib/firmware and deleting the iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0.pnvm file. I have also tried directly downloading the driver file from Intel’s website. I have seen this process mentioned a few times on different sites/threads, but haven’t found anything clearly tied to my situation.

I can see the WiFi card with both nmcli and lspci. From what I have found so far, dmesg shows the iwlwifi driver isn’t loading correctly (grep’d log attached). The NetworkManager and wpa_supplicant services are both reporting issues related to wlan0 as well. I can provide additional logs, but am not sure which would be useful and information about different settings (I have gone through enough things I can’t recall them all).

I have access to the Orin that I have previously setup the AX210 on and it is still able to connect to load and connect to networks, so I can check for settings differences between the different boards.

If anyone has any advice, I would greatly appreciate it!
