iwd crashes arch when I try to connect to my 5GHz access point.

Hello, I'm going through the installation guide, and I got to the part where I am connecting to wifi using iwd/iwctl.

I tried to connect to my access point, but it crashed the installer, and the only way to get back was to force shut-down my computer. I didn't know what was causing it at first, but after some attempts to troubleshoot it, I am successfully able to connect to the 2.4GHz access point without issue, but when I try the 5GHz one, it crashes. I also made sure to Start & enable iwd.service before using iwctl in case that was related.

Here are my logs, sorry it's a picture, I can't copy and paste it onto here.

There are some known kernel issues with that chipset, try using the LTS kernel or the patched kernel from https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/76922#comment213962

See https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=282306 as well.

Since this is the install iso, if you do can connect to the 2.4 network and it works use that to finish the install, otherwise potentially try an earlier ISO that does not yet use the 6.1 kernel.

Thanks so much! I appreciate the speedy reply.
I will continue installing using my 2.4GHz network, and will install the LTS kernel. I will keep my eye out for when the main kernel has that change and switch then.
