I have COMPUTE STICK M1K - INTEL with the operating system installed debian-10.6.0-amd64.
For this external drivers for the WLAN network card : firmware-iwlwifi_20190114-2_all.deb

The network works in Debian!
ip a
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: wlp1s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 74:d8:3e:23:40:bf brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

       valid_lft 67838sec preferred_lft 67838sec
    inet6 2a02:908:3711:xxxx:884e:9335:847:a016/64 scope global dynamic noprefixroute
       valid_lft 172799sec preferred_lft 86399sec
    inet6 fe80::8414:e6d0:f64b:b050/64 scope link noprefixroute

In ProxMox VE is no physical interface ! :(
update / progress....for separate installation debian + proxmox

If in /etc/network/interfeces add this line...
auto wlp1s0
iface wlp1s0 inet manual

then the hardware network interface shows up in the proxmox panel, but disappears from debian
wlan not work
