Yes, but you would need to know what you are doing.

If kernel doesn't know what to do with it. Why driver don't install? If I will install driver, Kerner will know, what will to do with it. Or am I wrong?

Hi Max.irkut
According to your  lspci  attachment, your device is 8086:15fa. That device uses the  e1000e  driver. According
to this, support for your device was not added to the driver until kernel version 5.5:
Code: [Select]
lkddb pci 8086 15fa .... .... ...... : CONFIG_E1000E CONFIG_ETHERNET CONFIG_NET_VENDOR_INTEL : drivers/net/ethernet/intel/e1000e/netdev.c # in 5.5-5.16, 5.17-rc+HEADfound here:

Hi Max.irkut
I think it's unlikely you'll be able to use the Intel adapter with your current kernel.
