Installation using manjaro-kde-21.1.1-210827-linux54 failed to install network device drivers.
Since I don’t have access to any network resources on the target machine, I need to figure out where to get the correct drivers, and how to install them.
System: Dell Precision 7560, with an intel cpu, and a hybrid intel/nvidia graphics system.
Output from inxi -N:

I assume I need to do 1 of 2 (or both) things:
- Download the firmware.cab from from fwupd.org (my machine model is LVFS listed) and install it through the bios, then re-install manjaro from the pahvo installer.
- Download the latest linux-firmware (from where?) and install it (how?)
My UI didn’t install properly (probably a display driver problem), but I can tackle that after I get network up and running.
Am I on the right path? What do I need to do to get my network connection working??? Please keep in mind any solution will require me to be able to download a file to usb from another machine, mount the usb, and then do something with the file (I think…)
