Re: [opensuse-factory] Opensuse Tumbleweed with recent updates fails to connect the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AS 8265 interface
* Foolish Ewe <foolishewe@xxxxxxxxxxx> [10-29-17 17:13]:
Hello All:

I have a new laptop, model  HP Spectre x360 Convertible 15-bl1XX which
initially worked with OpenSuse Tumble Weed but appears to have lost all
network support for its Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 network hardware.
This issue is my most urgent current issue, since I need to make a decision
soon to keep or return this laptop.

Leap supported the network device out of the box but updates broke it.  I
checked https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi and I see
that I need a Linux kernel version 4.6+ for this driver, but leap is
currently on the 4.4 kernel version, so I took a chance on tumbleweed.  I had
tumbleweed up and running with good network support for a few days this week,
then did a big update one or 2 days ago, the networking was working and
suddenly stopped. The Networks manager daemons appear to be up and running
as per yast but the kde network manager client won't show me available
networks or allow me to log in at all, I just see a red icon in my task bar
and when I click on it I see the networking is enabled, but no list of access
points, and not prompt from kwallet to login to my router.  I can't easily
report diagnostics without network access, I'm quite sad about this.   As far
as I can tell I'm on the most recent bios :

wmic bios get biosversion
BIOSVersion
{"HPQOEM - 1072009", "F.20", "American Megatrends - 5000C"}

If there is a specific set of logs that I should retrieve, I can try to boot
back into Linux, but until this is fixed, I can only access the internet via
Windows 10.

I looked in Bugzilla and the most closely related report appears to be
https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1065127, but, unlike Bug
1065127 in my case I don't have an initial connection period before the drop.

Any guidance or help is appreciated. On a side note, I'm a bit new to the
journalctl log access, so a little guidance on how to select any requested
logs would also be appreciated.

what is the output of:
systemctl status network
