Hello @pinakg and welcome to the community. Please read the documents in the #start-here category when you have the time.

Well.
In order to know what wifi model it is equipped with this laptop, could you provide the result of these two commands?

lspci -v | grep -i net

Firstly you need to find out the model of your wifi adapter.
Do it with inxi -Nxx or lspci | grep -i net.
It will probably be Realtek RTL8821CE, knowing that search for drivers or instructions. Here’s fresh topic, it looks like this adapter doesn’t work out of the box, but require additional driver:
