This is a WiFi card: it's also WiFi 6 and therefore very new,
potentially. It needs non-free iwlwifi - it's possible that the version
in Debian Testing (Bullseye) which has kernel 5.10 might support this
Maybe try the Testing non-free installer? Testing is frozen now for
major transitions on the way to releasing Bullseye later in the year.
You might just have been bitten by the fact that very new hardware often
needs very new software.
All the very best, as ever,
