Has anybody successfully installed an M.2 2230 WiFi/BlueTooth kit in the Up Square ?

If so, was any change in the BIOS necessary ?

t have installed an Intel 8265 M.2 2230 adapter but it does not even appear in the devices manager.

I know for a fact that the card works, having tested it in my Dell XPS 15.

    Hi Cedric,

    Which OS are you running on the UP Squared?

    I have installed a bluetooth/wifi 1630 card that I pulled from my dell laptop and it works fine with no setup under win 10.

    The Intel 8265AC created problems with USB. I can only assume the Up Squared is maxxed out in its capacity usage, IRQ or PCI lane.

    In the end, I swapped it out with my Dell XPS's older Intel AC7260.


    The 7260 does work with the Up Square - sort of.
    No problem with WiFi or my BT keyboard.

    Without antenna (my ipx connectors are too big) the Bluetooth reception is very limited, keyboard & mouse must be within 20-30cm of the card.

    The same issue here.

    OS: Archlinux with kernel 4.12.10
    firmware: iwlwifi-8265-27.ucode

    if first boot, the intel 8265 confirmed with lspci command output,
    but completely lost after reboot without disconnected power supply.
    them reboot again, it comes back.

    pass "reboot=efi" to kernel’s command-line parameters fix it

    Wondering if you are still on 4.12.x kernel with this working for you. With 4.13k I am not seeing the device anymore, and no errors generated.

    Edit: The only consistent method I have found to get it seen is by removal of power, trying to force a cold reboot did not work:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="reboot=cold intel_iommu=on quiet splash"
    on Linux upyours 4.13.3-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Sep 21 20:33:16 CEST 2017 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    somewhat annoying feature, did not notice this on 4.12.x but I may have just missed it occurring.

    I assume this is an issue of the BIOS and was wondering if you would expect it to be addressed in the next relase?

    Hi @Kabuli Chana

    We are implementing a change for the next BIOS release which will add compatibility for Intel AC9260 and AX200, which might also improve the compatibility of older Intel WiFi module, but they haven't been test as we are currently supporting only the AC3165.

    The new BIOS will be available in early January.

    Hi All,

    BIOS R5.0 for UP Squared has been released and it includes the necessary changes to support out of the box the Intel AC9260 and AX200 (the second one with mainline kernel 5.2+).

    https://downloads.up-community.org/download/up-squared-uefi-bios-v5-0/

    We haven't tested the older Intel WiFi Cards, except the 3165, but they should also benefit from the implemented changes.
