Re: LM 18.3 32b Mate: enp1s0 down, won't come up

this would be a perfect time to use timeshift and roll back to when it worked. you must have changed something or done some updates, in /var/log/apt you have 2 logs for history and terminal look to see what took place before your network went down

if you don't get any output in terminal for typing wps then there's not much of a trace to follow. maybe something to do with the themes again? try switching themes to a Mint-Y theme for the desktop

You know what, I just can't get my head around this. Same computer, same RAM, same browser, same network, nothing different except OS, yet Linux is infuriatingly slower.
