SOLVED

Yesterday evening I suspended the laptop and as I opened the lid today, wi-fi was working perfectly fine. Still works after a reboot. Self-repair over night? Nice.

Re: Mint 18.3 Reverting back from nouveau to nvidia driver

No effect.

Had to click an option to see the kernel update in Update Manager first - indeed there was an update to "4.13.0-43-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0)". Not 4.15 though...

Trying to apply the 2 offered nvidia drivers in the Driver Manager + rebooting had no effect.

Thanks for your effort!
