Intel AX200 Wi-Fi adapter not working in Ubuntu 18.04


After installing Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, in settings it says Wi-Fi adapter not found. However, bluetooth still works. My Wi-Fi card is an Intel AX200. I have installed the firmware from Intel's website (by copying it into /lib/firmware). According to the instructions, after copying the file I should load the driver which I did by doing "sudo modprobe iwlwifi". Also I am running kernal 5.6.0 which is above the minimum kernal on the Intel website, and Wi-Fi works in Windows 10 (which I have in dual boot right now).

After runnning "dmesg | grep iwlwifi," I get the following:

[ 4.126373] iwlwifi 0000:06:00.0: enabling device (0000 -> 0002) [ 4.206832] iwlwifi: probe of 0000:0f:00.0 failed with error -110


This is what I get when running lspci -nnk | grep 0280 -A3:

06:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0084] (rev 1a) Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0084] Kernel modules: iwlwifi

If there is anything else I need to run please tell me. Thanks!

I have updated to the latest kernal and installed the firmware.
