No wifi support on Ubuntu20.04 with AX211

Hi, I just bought a new laptop with wifi-6e AX211 and have installed Ubuntu20.04 on it. But there's no wifi support so I guess there are problems with the wifi driver.

So I download https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/_media/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi-ty-59.601f3a66.0.tgz manually and use

sudo cp iwlwifi*.ucode /lib/firmware

to install the driver and reboot my machine. But it doesn't work.

Then I use

dmesg | grep wifi

 to check the driver, and it shows

[    2.180971] iwlwifi 0000:00:14.3: check git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git

It confuses me because the driver file should be iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0-59.ucode but all it is loading is iwlwifi-so*.ucode file rather than iwlwifi-ty*.ucode.

I wonder why is that and how can I solve the wifi problem?

Thanks a lot
