Support for MediaTek MT7927

Hi, is there any way to get w MediaTek Wifi 7 MT7927 to work? I have “Gigabyte Auros Elite 7 Wifi 7” Z790 mainboard. Everything is working fine but the Wifi… Maybe Kernel 6.7 will support it ? Thanks…

You could try the lts kernel


From looking around online It seems mediatek is considered a problematic card in linux world. I tried to look for its drivers online and it seems linux doesn’t have any support for it right now neither in 6.6.y nor in 6.7.y kernel/git/stable/linux.git - Linux kernel stable tree I would assume this might take a while to arrive.

Also the same searches tell me that there was a recent wifi regression bug in kernels so there might be a longer delay. MediaTek Wi-Fi 7 MT7927 - Network - Manjaro Linux Forum

Yup it seems they merged support for mt7925 News: Firmware for the mt7925 (WiFi 7) Chipset Posted · Issue #359 · morrownr/USB-WiFi · GitHub last week something that started development in august last year and doesn’t even have any mentions of mt7927 so I believe it is certainly a while away.


If you dual boot, make sure to fully shutdown Windows, and disable fast startup there.


Yeah… I did also search the web without luck, widows is shut down correctly, no fast boot/hibernation. Feels hopeless for now :frowning:
