I only have a Wi-Fi internet connection available, but the netboot isn't creating a network adapter for me to configure — I expected
wlan0 or similar, but it doesn't exist. The computer contains Intel Wireless-AC 9461 hardware, and the
iwlwifi driver does appear to be loading successfully, including its firmware:
~ # dmesg | grep iwlwifi [ 2.379659] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: Found debug destination: EXTERNAL_DRAM [ 2.379661] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: Found debug configuration: 0 [ 2.379887] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: loaded firmware version 46.6bf1df06.0 op_mode iwlmvm
But only the loopback and wired network adapters are present:

The netboot is running a recent Linux kernel version that should support this card:
~ # uname -a Linux (none) 5.3.0-18-generic #19-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 8 20:14:06 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux

rfkill list did not output anything.
I have no idea what else to try here. Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks!
