I bought a new laptop Xiaomi Notebook Pro 14 2022 (Intel i7 12gen) (do I need a full specification?) and unfortunately I can't activate wi-fi. I've tried installing the latest Ubuntu and PopOS available images, but Wi-Fi doesn't seem to work on both out of the box (I chose pop OS). Right now, the only possible way to access the Internet on a laptop is with a modem from my smartphone.
Listed below are some specifications:

lshw -C network results:

I found different solutions, but here is what I tried:
- I tried installing the driver from the following github repo: https://github.com/HRex39/rtl8852be
EFI Secure Boot disabled
But this is what i get in return:
... cc1: some warnings being treated as errors make: *** [scripts/Makefile.build:249: /home/artkharlamov/rtl8852be/os_dep/linux/ioctl_cfg80211.o] Error 1 make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs.... make: *** [Makefile:1849: /home/ak/rtl8852be] Error 2 make: Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-5.19.0-76051900-generic' make: *** [Makefile:637: modules] Error 2
- I also found solutions to a similar problem in similar threads by installing the drivers from the following github repository: https://github.com/lwfinger/rtw89 But that didn't help either.
Tell me what I'm doing wrong and how to make my wi-fi work!
