Installing Intel 9260 wifi drivers on Ubuntu 20.04

I'm really new to the whole linux world, i built a new PC that has a built in WiFi chip inside. I installed a fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04 but i can't connect to WiFi. I've been racking my head around this all day. I found the lshw -c Network command and found that my network controller is "Unclaimed", researching that stating that i don't have a driver tied to my network card. i looked up the linux drivers for the Intel wireless-AC 9260 chip but i have no idea how to install it. could anyone shed some light and help this poor noob?
