Jetson TX2 NX and Intel WiFi AC 8265 - unable to connect

I’m trying to use the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 board for TX2 NX.
The result for
dmesg | grep iwlwifi
showed a few
Direct firmware load for iwlwifi-8265-XX.ucode failed with error -2

I tried installing the driver from Linux* Support for Intel® Wireless Adapters and still have this same problem. The wifi board is detected but can’t connect.

Solved this issue by removing all other drivers for that WiFi board and reinstalling the latest one.

cd /lib/firmware
sudo rm -r iwlwifi-8265*

Then reinstall the driver from the Intel site.

Glad to know issue resolved.

Needed an extra step:
sudo gedit /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
And comment the line
Save and sudo service network-manager restart
