Install Intel Driver on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS


Hello, I've got a DELL Inspiron 5000 (14'') with installed Windows10 and Ubuntu 18.04.3LTS.

Unfortunately Ubuntu can't see my WiFi network interface. So I have to install the driver "Intel® Wireless-AC 9462" for Ubuntu, The web site is: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005511/network-and-io/wireless-networking.html


The folder of this driver is composed by the following three files:

- iwlwifi-9000-pu-b0-jf-b0-34.ucode

- LICENSE.iwlwifi-9000.ucode

- README.iwlwifi-9000.ucode


Unfortunately the file README is very complicated to understand.

Can you help me with the instructions to install this driver?


Thank you very much!!
