Thank you for contacting Intel Communities.
I am sorry to hear you are having issues to make the wireless adapter to work.
Linux drivers are part of the upstream Linux* kernel. They are available through the regular channels, distributions, or the Linux* kernel archives. We support the use of the drivers only in the kernel version the driver was a part of. You can check the following link for the supported kernel for the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 module.

I hope this information helps.
