I installed first Ubuntu 20.04 and later tried Ubuntu 21.04. Both times, no wifi adapter were found and Bluetooth wasn't working either. Same story after updating packages. Wifi works on Windows. SecureBoot disabled.

To my understanding the wifi card is a Mediatek mt7961

lspci -nnk | grep 0280

05:00.0 Network controller [0280]: MEDIATEK Corp. Device [14c3:7961]

No drivers for it:

inxi -nz

Network:
  Device-1: Realtek driver: r8169 
  IF: enp4s0 state: up speed: 100 Mbps duplex: full mac: <filter> 
  Device-2: MEDIATEK driver: N/A

Kernel:

uname -a
Linux ****-Nitro-AN515-45 5.11.0-18-generic

Anything I could do to get the wifi working? I mainly work with Ubuntu and would like to keep the laptop.

EDIT After upgrading the kernel to 5.12.9, the Wifi is working. However, Bluetooth still doesn't.

Trying to also fix Bluetooth

Installing latest linux kernel (5.15) solved the problem for me.
