    Recently I bought a new laptop (on Windows) and WiFi was working. I installed Elementary OS Hera and installed all the drivers. But Linux iwlwifi driver does not working and I didn't found my WiFi card in the list of supported WiFi cards. My WiFi card on Windows works with WLAN Intel v21.0.0.5 (Download links: 1 2).
    It would be great if support will be added.

    Hello! This problem was solved once, but when I downloaded an update pack of Elementary OS from AppCenter (update to 5.1.2 Hera), the problem with WiFi adapter was caused again.

    backport-iwlwifi-dkms driver (version 7906) is not working more.

    Also I have a problem with my microphone, it is not critical but it will be great if it starts to work. Windows version of driver for my audiocard is here.

    Could you provide a little more detail on your wifi card? From the links you pasted, I'm guessing you have an Intel wireless adapter.

    run lsusb on the command line to list out your devices.

    it should give you something similar to the output below, my wifi adapter is the 3rd row in the list.
    Code (Text):
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 008: ID 1122:4455
    Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0bda:b720 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:0129 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTS5129 Card Reader Controller
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0b05:184c ASUSTek Computer, Inc.
    Bus 001 Device 009: ID 05e3:0751 Genesys Logic, Inc.
    Bus 001 Device 007: ID 413c:301b Dell Computer Corp.
    Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1c4f:0002 SiGma Micro Keyboard TRACER Gamma Ivory
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 214b:7250
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Take note of the hardware id: 0bda:b720
    Then use this site to look it up: https://linux-hardware.org/index.php?view=search

    Type in: 0bda in the Vendor_ID field and b720 in the Device_ID field and click search.

    In the results that come back it should list your card, click on the link for additional details, and hopefully a driver that will work with your card.

    Do post the output of lsusb here also so we know which card you have.
