I am a proper noob and I installed Mint on my laptop.
I struggled with getting the Nvidia drivers working but after consulting a few forum posts that issue is all resolved (I think).
Now comes the WIFI issue, the Intel network card is not being used, there is only the option for wired connection.
Here are the relevant logs;

I have disabled secure boot, found the relevant firmware file on the intel site;
https://www.intel.co.uk/content/www/uk/ ... rking.html
The first one, for the 9560, and I copy and pasted the ucode iwlwifi file into the /lib/firmware folder.
There was already a file with the same name in the folder and it had been edited more recently but I replaced it anyways.
After rebooting there is no change.
Please help, I am not sure what to try next, is it the firmware, drivers, kernel?
If I go into the drivers manager there is only the option for the GPU.
Thanks for any help, it's much appreciated.
