Hi

 

If you could access Windows and list the hardware it may help.

 

Also it is possible there is no equivalent Linux Driver, and NDIS wrapper may be a workaround.

 

 

The possibilities seem to be an Intel or a Realtek.

 

sudo ifconfig -a

sudo hwinfo --network

 

may give the name.

 

Then it would be a case of

 

sudo apt install wireless-tools

 

So if you can post the make & model ....

Hi

 

Perhaps

 

sudo apt update
sudo apt install linux-generic-hwe-16.04

If not the Intel page is here...

and the drivers packaged here.
