ZOTAC-MI351-E WiFi supported?

Hey everyone,

I just bought a new Zotac-MI351-E and installed Proxmox and OpenWRT on it. Wanted to do a PCI passthrough with the PCIe WiFi card.

Running lspci -nnk inside the OpenWRT container shows the card is detected, but it doesn't show as a selectable device.

Output from OpenWRT:

Output from Proxmox:

00:14.3 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:54f0]
        DeviceName: Onboard - Ethernet
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0244]

I checked this page to find the right driver: https://wiki.freebsd.org/WiFi/Iwlwifi/Chipsets and not sure there is one yet.

Am I correct in assuming that there is no compatible driver yet and therefore OpenWRT doesn't pick it up as a WiFi device?

Why are you looking at the FreeBSD list? Openwrt is Linux based

Have you installed the Intel wifi kmods?

Keep in mind you’re unlikely to get good or any AP support on an Intel card

I have installed kmod-iwlwifi, yes.

Just opened the case though to check for the exact model. It's AX101D2W. After your hint regarding FreeBSD I checked this page instead: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi and couldn't find it. I guess it is not supported yet.

Here they suggest to use backport-iwlwifi: https://community.intel.com/t5/Wireless/Where-to-get-Linux-driver-for-Intel-Wi-Fi-6-AX101/m-p/1464353

EDIT: From dmesg:
