Re: kernel updates disable wi-fi

Why are you updating kernels? If you have all of your hardware working, keep the kernel you have. Only update your kernel if you have a problem that a newer kernel might fix, or if there is a security bulletin associated with the kernel you are using. Updating a kernel 'because it's there' is madne...

Re: HP 15-r014TX Wireless (onboard & USB dongle) not working

It isn't the RT3290 but it could be something specific to some HP's that is the issue
You could try blacklisting hp-wmi and rebooting

Code: Select all

echo "blacklist hp-wmi" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/hp-wifi.conf
