Wi-fi hotspot not detected in Debian 10
Debian also has
"Here are some extra images, equivalent to the normal images we produce regularly except in that they also include non-free firmware to make things easier on some systems requiring proprietary but redistributable firmware."
I always use them, much easier.
The Mate version includes Bluetooth and Wifi that work out of the box for me.
you can drill down to the Live Non-Free ISOs with the desktop of choice installed.
Cinnamon 3.8,
GNOME 3.30,
KDE Plasma 5.14,
LXDE 0.99.2,
LXQt 0.14,
MATE 1.20,
Xfce 4.12.

If you Start with the non-free firmware ISO your repositories will be set to also pickup any security updates to the non-free packages.

If you are really a GNU fanatic you may wish to try PCLinuxOS ( I like it kinda.
Unfortunately it is also bloated (like Ubuntu/Mint) with a lot of cruft I have no use for, and has some garish "dark theme" that I dislike.

Welcome to the bigger world of Debian!


PS: I just viewed that video. His procedure might work... but lots of gyrations.
I personally dislike videos for things like this, hard to follow for me.
Considering you have little invested at this point I suggest a fresh install with the proper ISO.
