I've seen people saying to install firmware-iwlwifi, but it conflicts with several base PVE packages:

Code:
Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  proxmox-ve pve-firmware pve-kernel-5.15 pve-kernel-5.19
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  firmware-iwlwifi
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 4 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B/13.4 MB of archives.
After this operation, 286 MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]

Another answer said to create /etc/modprobe.d/iwl.conf with the following, but it didn't seem to help either (though I think that's where the ignored options from dmesg are coming from):

Code:
options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 swcrypto=0 bt_coex_active=0 power_save=0
options iwlmvm power_scheme=1 
options iwlwifi d0i3_disable=1 
options iwlwifi uapsd_disable=1 
options iwlwifi lar_disable=1

lspci:
Code:
04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:2725] (rev 1a)
    Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0024]
    Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
    Kernel modules: iwlwifi

dmesg originally gave the error [ 9.771372] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: PNVM data is missing, please install iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0.pnvm, but installing that file from https://github.com/Netronome/linux-firmware/blob/master/iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0.pnvm to /lib/firmware did not cause the wireless card to work (though it did cause dmesg to stop throwing that particular error).

I've seen people saying to install firmware-iwlwifi, but it conflicts with several base PVE packages:
Yes, as that is already included in a newer version and fitting to the FW versions that our kernel actually knows about in the pve-firmware package, which gets actually loaded for you (then modules tries to loaded the newest version known to it, if that vails the next older one it still is compatible with and so on, for you the version 66 matches and gets loaded).
dmesg originally gave the error [ 9.771372] iwlwifi 0000:04:00.0: PNVM data is missing, please install iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0.pnvm, but installing that file from https://github.com/Netronome/linux-firmware/blob/master/iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0.pnvm to /lib/firmware did not cause the wireless card to work (though it did cause dmesg to stop throwing that particular error).
I strongly discourage loading some random firmware files from third party repos, that's a very easy attack vector to use.
If any, use our actual trusted upstream: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/
But the versions should match there too.

That said, it really looks like the file is missing, which is a bit strange as we ship any FW file a kernel module refers to using modinfo tool, so I need to look into this specific class of FW to see why they're treated differently.

With that there seems still some issues left that needs fixing in the iwlwifi module, like for example:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=201761#c64
