    Killer Wireless Module Not Detected

    I have recently installed Ubuntu as a Dualboot alongside Windows 10 on a Dell XPS 15 9510, I had no problems except that my wifi module (an Intel Killer AX1650) is not being recognized and can't install the correct driver.
    I'm running the Linux 5.8.0-43-generic x86_64 Kernel with the Ubuntu version 20.04.1.
    when I run the command lshw this is what ubuntu detects:

     *-network UNCLAIMED             description: Network controller
                 product: Intel Corporation
                 vendor: Intel Corporation
                 physical id: 14.3
                 bus info: pci@0000:00:14.3
                 version: 11
                 width: 64 bits
                 clock: 33MHz
                 capabilities: cap_list
                 configuration: latency=0
                 resources: iomemory:610-60f memory:616529c000-616529ffff
    I have tried different solutions, including this one,
    where the last step
     sudo dpkg -i backport-iwlwifi-dkms_8042-0ubuntu2_all.deb 
    throws me this error:
    (Reading database ... 153319 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to unpack backport-iwlwifi-dkms_8324-0ubuntu3~20.04.4_all.deb ...

    Error!  The /var/lib/dkms/backport-iwlwifi/8324/5.8.0-43-generic/x86_64/dkms.conf for module backport-iwlwifi includes a BUILD_EXCLUSIVE directive which
    does not match this kernel/arch.  This indicates that it should not be built.
    I'm kind of clueless now, i'll be thankful for any help i can get
