Clarification Request
No laptop model?

You may want to move up to latest Ubuntu to see if they supply a driver for your unknown WiFi card and laptop. I no longer work hard at finding drivers for Linux. I just test a newer version until the WiFi shows up.

If you wish to go beyond the usual, then post in Ubuntu forums but leave out the email address and supply the laptop make, model along with the laptop's make, model WiFi card.

Re: Wireless
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117301 says it's a "desktop" processor and you call it a "PC".
R.Proffitt assumes it's a laptop, but I doubt that.

Just yesterday, my son (a fairly intelligent and digitally capable boy of 25) called me and asked why his brand new desktop I had installed Windows on couldn't connect to his WiFi. I had to tell him to buy a USB WiFi stick or a WiFi to Ethernet converter.
If you want to use such in Ubuntu, be sure it's compatible. A good thing to ask the seller before buying it.
