    Hi guys! I've got a question. Does anyone know if there is any and what difference between UDOO x86 (kickstarter version) and UDOO x86 II? Would original one support Intel WiFi 6 AX200 wifi adapter (this one to be specific: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TLBNSZQ)?

    I am experiencing issues getting adapter to work in original UDOO x86 with installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (5.4.0-26-generic kernel). It just does not seem to recognize it, or maybe I am doing something incorrectly. When running ip addr or ifconfig, all I get is lo: and enp2s0:, nothing else. lspci shows ethernet adapter along with other devices, but not wifi.

    I've also downloaded firmware from Intel page (https://www.intel.com/content/www/u...5511/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking.html) and tried to install it to /lib/firmware. Does not seem to help.

    I am coming from Windows world and this is my first experience with Linux. So, any comparisons or correlations would be helpful for me to understand it better.

    You'll find information about how I was able to get the AC200 WiFi/BT M.2 card to function on my early UdooX86 system running Ubuntu 18.04.4-LTS here: https://www.udoo.org/forum/threads/udoo-x86-ultra-android-and-intel-ax200-wifi.31867/

    Only yesterday, I was finally able to enable Blutooth operation by overwriting the btusb.ko with one modified by a Unix wizard. You'll find it here: https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/t/installing-intel-ax200ngw-bluetooth/115362/3

    Next, you'll be thinking about a WiFi6 router purchase. I've got my eye on one of these:
    ASUS RT-AX89X AX6000 Dual Band WiFi 6 Router, 802.11ax 12 streams 6000Mbps when/if they become available.

    As a Linux nubee, you're in for a long and enlightening road of learning and self-education. Be prepared to routinely read Linux manual pages (it gets easier over time), and discover the virtually unbounded versatility and power Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie designed into this remarkably prescient operating system back in the '60s. Virtually anything you can consecutive can be be implemented, that's why it's still the OS of choice today. Have fun.

    As a side note, I far prefer Debian to Ubuntu, but Nvidea chose Ubuntu for working with its artificial intelligence development systems. Their privacy history is a concern: https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/ubuntu-spyware.html
