Help with issues regarding installation of Debian

Laptop wifi and sound AWOL with Debian Buster.

I just purchased a Lenovo Legion 5i laptop that I am trying to get sorted out with a Debian Buster KDE Plasma minimal netinstall. Here is all of the output that I have:

Network and sound are the current issues, but it is probable that there may be other issues that I have yet to discover. In such a case, if you notice something, please give a shout.

Hmm. Interestingly, I am don't see a wifi nic listed, nor are there any specifics on audio device-1.

According to this posting https://www.reddit.com/r/Lenovo/comments/jl0icr/lenovo_legion_5i_keeps_disconnecting_from_wifi/, I would assume that I also have an Intel ax201 wireless card. The wireless works with Fedora 33 and Solus 4.1, but again having difficulty figuring out what the driver is. I have tried:
Code: Select all
$ sudo apt install firmware-iwlwifi
, but still nothing...

The AX201 needs the kernel & iwl firmware from the buster-backports repository. You might also need firmware-misc-nonfree from there for your sound card.

Wow. That is great. Thanks. I will give that a try.
