help request with wifi on linux Show more
so i've got a new desktop computer, and it works pretty well except for the wifi: i can see the AP and authenticate, but then DHCP and stuff just fail
with a wifi USB dongle, it works
the wifi chipset is an Intel Wireless-AC 3168NGW integrated in the computer's motherboard
i'm running Debian testing with linux 5.10.0 and firmware-iwlwifi 20210208-1 and i have no idea what to do
also bluetooth support (handled by the same chip but through USB??) is… weird?
my headphones work
my gamepad does not
it may be that for some reason, the wifi signal is received extremely poorly
it works with my phone as an AP, but it shows a very poor signal even with the phone just besides the computer :/

it was, uh, missing an antenna ._.
This is a small personal instance running on a couple small ARM servers at home.
