Helpful: Getting Intel Killer Wifi 6 interfaces to work on Linux via back-porting.

This is more for my personal use as I needed a place to drop this ,but if its helpful for you – enjoy! I have been fiddizzling with a Dell XPS 15 and trying to get a modern version of Kubuntu to work on it. Its been a challenge somewhere between the bios, the kernel, the hardware, graphic acceleration, and I have no idea what else at this point. If I ever figure it out maybe I will post it.

You may ask – Hey, how am I supposed get these packages if my wifi isnt working and my laptop doesnt have an physical ethernet port. The easiest thing to do is to connect your phone via USB, enable USB tethering in your settings and Abracadabra Peanut Butter sandwiches… you have connectivity.

sudo apt install git
sudo apt install build-essential
cd ~ 
git clone https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/iwlwifi/backport-iwlwifi.git
cd backport-iwlwifi
make defconfig-iwlwifi-public
make -j4
sudo make installsudo git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git
cd linux-firmware
sudo cp iwlwifi-* /lib/firmware/

After a quick reboot you should have a working Wifi 6 and Bluetooth interface.
