I am newish to Linux. I have dual booted on old laptops and I managed to get my wireless driver working back then by downloading it and installing but I cannot remember how i managed that.
I am worried that there is no driver for my wireless card:
GIGABIT LAN & WIRELESS INTEL® AC-8260 M.2 (867Mbps, 802.11AC)
I'm looking for a linux driver from intel and i'm worried there isn't one available;
Please could someone help me out. I bought a new laptop without windows installed, hoping to get involved with Linux and learn all about it and I'm struggling at the first hurdle!

I have the wifi option in the top right corner, but nothing is happening. Wifi is ok on my other laptop.
