Nemo doesn't see USB flash drive on router

I have a usb flash drive plugged into a Spectrum Sagemcom F@st5260 Router that I am trying to read in Nemo on Mint 19.3 Cinnamon. I have tried using "Connect to Server" under File, but it times out.

Re: ExpressVPN issue? Wifi disconnecting and re-connecting

I upgraded to 19.3 yesterday evening and am still having no issues. I am assuming the problem had something to do with the ExpressVPN installation/setup. Unfortunately I do not know what actually caused the problem. It would have been good to know how to correct it if it happens again.

Re: ExpressVPN issue? Wifi disconnecting and re-connecting

"sudo systemctl disable expressvpn.service" didn't correct the issue. I had hoped to avoid reverting with Timeshift, but that's what I did and it seems to have resolved the problem. I am back on 19.1, we'll see what happens when I upgrade to 19.3.

Re: wifi disconnecting

I have followed all the pertinent advice from the "How to solve internet connection problems" page. Power management now shows as off with iwconfig. However, there is still no change. Wireless is still connecting and disconnecting.
I appreciate any other suggestions.

Re: Boot to USB/DVD from GRUB

I thought that might be the case. It would be a neat addition to the GRUB if it would offer those options.

Boot to USB/DVD from GRUB

Is it possible to place "boot from usb", and "boot from cd/dvd" options in the GRUB menu? If so, how would one accomplish that? I am running Mint 19.2. Thanks in advance. :D

Using Synaptic Package Manager, I first uninstalled everything Lightning related. Then I reinstalled Lightning with SPM. It finally worked after that.

I tried several things before installing with Synaptic Package Manager. I uninstalled with SPM before I re-installed. Now the calendar is back and synced with my Google Calendar. Thanks again for the help. :D
