Help with wifi and dkms installation

Hello there, I've just installed zorin os on my Asus 515da Ryzen 5 3500u, but I can't connect to any network. Already downloaded the wifi driver and dkms, but when i try to install I got the 'pending' status on the app manager and it doesn't install, already tried to install from the terminal but I can't. My laptop model doesn't have Ethernet port so I'm downloading things on my smartphone and sending to my laptop using a data cable.

Are you able to use your smartphones Hotspot to connect your computer to the net temporarily?

Yes, I didn't know I could do that with my phone lol. What's the next step?

What is the terminal output of

sudo lshw -c network

Got it!
I did an apt-get update, apt-get upgrade and apt-get install dksm and after that I've installed the driver with dpkg. Thank you for your help!
