I'm trying to install debian on a laptop, on which I previously had ubuntu with everything working fine.
After trying various ISOs (including firmware, looking at sid, testing, and stable), it always starts with looking for a link on eth0, debian never asks me to select a wifi access point every time I kept on going through the install, at least up to where it asks for the mirrors, but even then, it can't reach them, and still doesn't ask so I kept on going with the bare basiscs install, and am now in the root shell, so I can check some more system info. # ifconfig wlan0 up gives the error
wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device, which didn't help me much through google
and ifconfig only lists

Any clues to what it might be and how to fix it?
If there's any more information needed, ofc feel free to ask. I realize this is not completely on topic, and if preferred, I'll bring the question over to unix
