Wireless Adapter not detected in Linux Mint 19.1 on Dell Inspiron 5580

On a Dell Inspiron 5580, the wireless adapter is of Intel. The same is not detected when installing Linux Mint 19.1 the first time. This is because of the kernel not being updated.

Once Linux Mint 19.1 is installed, the later kernel 4.15.0-52 installed upon update, makes the wireless adapter work.
