Anyone have first hand experience with MediaTek 7925 Wifi7 yet?

So, just ordered a 7925 to try it out on one of my laptops. Don’t have a Wifi 7 router yet, so been looking at them as well, but the few I’m interested in I can’t find for a price I’m willing to pay (yet). Oh well, just really interested in if it works at all for now (reason I only ordered 1). So want to find out if anyone has actually used one yet and can relay their experience.

Edit: This is all I know as far as the hardware goes. The module has been in the kernel since 6.7

Yeah, unfortunately that’s the amount I knew about it already too. :smiley: Hoping to find some first hand experience of people who’s used it. Not that it matters, I’ll be finding out in a few weeks.
Still need to figure out how I can find the Qualcomm QCNM865 as well to test that out. Actually, was looking for that (without buying the full $50 MSI desktop kit that includes it) when I saw the 7925’s for sale.

I see a number of suppliers have the Pci-e desktop card but not a laptop card.

Yeah, they sold the m.2 cards for a few months last year, then they all disappeared and the only way to get one is one of the desktop cards that have the m.2 in them. But the m.2 by itself was about $25-30, whereas the cheapest of the PCIe adapters is $50…

FOUND ONE!!! Found someone on ebay selling the qcncm865 desktop setup that had lost the antennas, no box, no documentation, so they had them for $20 instead of $50. Got one coming, so will have 2 laptops I can upgrade to wifi 7 (1 MT7925 and the 1 NCM865).
Guess I need to start seriously considering a wifi 7 gateway now…

Up and running on the 7925. Recognized with no issues, and in the few minutes I’ve been testing so far, there’s been no issues. Immediate connection and been stable thus far.
