    Post network UNCLAIMED

    Completely new to ubuntu, come from an ms background, just built a computer with my 9 year old son so we can learn about ubuntu/linux together.
    When I updated the drivers for the nvidia graphics card our wifi disappeared. In network settings it says 'No Wi-Fi Adapter' found.

    Ubuntu ver = 20.04 lts

    sudo lshw -C network:
    *-network UNCLAIMED
    description: Ethernet Controller
    product: RT8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controlleer

    *-network UNCLAIMED
    description: Ethernet Controller
    product: Wireless 8260

    I know to fix the problem has something to do with a lack of drivers. I'm just not sure how to fix or how to install drivers off a stick drive in Ubuntu. Any help is appreciated.

    What happens if you run this command in terminal
    sudo modprobe -v iwlwifi
