I have recently installed Ubuntu 18.04 on my device and run the setup without an internet connection. I do not have access to spare Ethernet cables, so it's up to Wi-Fi. I do not have an existing connection, so I can not install any packages. At this point, I have no idea what to do. My WLAN card is detected, but not displayed in ifconfig. I can not run iwconfig because wireless tools and wpasupplicant were not installed.
Here are some commands that give more information:
output [excluding all my other hardware]:
Network Controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (Version 31)
$ lshw class network
