Ubuntu 22.04 Intel Wireless-AC 9260. No wireless devices after upgrade from 20.04

fr flag

I've struggled with this issue for some time and afaik, something went awry during the Ubuntu upgrade. I saw some errors upon the first boot pertaining to iwlwifi but wasn't able to capture them. Upon subsequent reboot, I haven't found them using sudo dmesg | grep iwlwifi. I have tried a number of instructions provided on the internet to no avail.

I have added all relevant configuration information to following execution

My wireless card is a bluetooth and wifi combined card shipped with the ASUS TUF Gaming x570 plus wifi motherboard. I can see this device listed for what I believe is bluetooth operation, but not for wireless connection. For example these produce output sudo lsusb | grep 9260

Bus 003 Device 002: ID 8087:0025 Intel Corp. Wireless-AC 9260 Bluetooth Adapter

or sudo lshw | grep ntel -A 5 -B 3

description: Bluetooth wireless interface
product: Wireless-AC 9260 Bluetooth Adapter
vendor: Intel Corp.
physical id: 5
bus info: usb@3:5
version: 0.02
capabilities: bluetooth usb-2.00
configuration: driver=btusb maxpower=100mA speed=12Mbit/s`

While sudo lshw -C network only shows wired connections including the tethered phone I am using to submit this report.

Given the device isn't recognized, I think I need to make the driver available to the kernel, and I can confirm that I have the current driver version(s) available at /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-9260*. Thus, I have tried to add iwlwifi to the kernel with sudo modprobe iwlwifi which successfully lists lsmod | grep iwl

iwlwifi 450560 0
cfg80211 974848 1 iwlwifi

But, this doesn't seem to do anything to solve the issue and upon reboot lsmod | grep iwl is blank.

Finally sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager.service doesn't fix anything. If there is anything further I could do to fix this, I would be more than happy to give it a shot. Short of downgrading to Ubuntu 20.04, I'm not sure how to proceed.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
