Re: [SOLVED] Network-manager/Wireless issue on Linux Mint 18

Hello,

Related to this issue: when I disabled Bluetooth on my mint 18.3, I also lost wifi! None of the available wifi connections no longer appeared. Possible to add connection manually, but would not connect. When I enabled Bluetooth, WiFi immediately returned.
