I just successfully installed the latest version of Debian testing bullseye on a brand new Dell XPS 15, but I got some issues with the integrated WiFi card. Of course I installed the non-free firmware.
The Linux image package is linux-image-5.10.0-8-amd64, version 5.10.46-2.
I also tried version 5.10.54 from kernel.org.
Here is the log (grepped for iwlwifi):
[ 14.352938] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)
[ 14.358907] iwlwifi: No config found for PCI dev 43f0/1651,
[ 14.368948] iwlwifi: probe of 0000:00:14.3 failed with error -22
Then I tried to install the latest stable kernel version (5.13.6), I built it and installed, and now the WiFi card works just fine ! Here is the log of the working kernel:

According to Dell, it's supposed to be "Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 (2x2)" but it looks like the linux kernel doesn't agree.
While looking at this problem, I found other some strange issues.
It looks like that that the lines for this device were in the kernel since 5.1  but were removed in 5.8 . So v5.10 includes this change.
I'm not understanding this change properly, and I'm not sure what could have brought the support back between 5.10 and 5.13. I'd be happy to try a patch on my machine, and answer any additional question you may have.
See also the debian bug I reported about this: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=991712
I forgot that the goal would be to find a commit to backport in 5.10.
Hi, I have the same problem on my Dell XPS 17 9710.
