Re: Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

Rebooted, wi-fi works once more, tho the strength issue is still there.

Re: Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

I deleted the folder and cloned it again, then on step three it gave me this error:

Code: Select all

Error! DKMS tree already contains: rtl8192eu-1.0
You cannot add the same module/version combo more than once.

Re: Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

Thanks again for the help both of you. I managed to install the 4.15.0-52 kernels without any issues except wi-fi not being able to connect again. Used phone as usb adapter to be able to follow the steps JeremyB posted. However on the second step this happened: git clone https://github.com/Mange/rtl...

Re: Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

Can you confirm, that you have have the adapter version v4? It is important to know, because the different adapter versions of TL-WN822N (a total of 5) have different chipsets, so that different drivers are necessary. The label under the adapter says it's version 5. Model: TL-WN822N(EU). inxi -nxz:...

Re: Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

Yes, I was using my mobile phone as a usb adapter to get internet at that time. However now I've logged in (restarted from windows 10 since I was using that and switched to linux, in case it's relevant) and wi-fi works, albeit with really weak signal (38% opposed to windows where I had excellent str...

Re: Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

Thanks a lot, I am now able to log in into cinnamon again, I'll try to keep these steps in mind for when I inevitably break Linux again. However the wi-fi issue still persists, seems like the kernels are still updated, but not entirely sure. Here's the inxi -Fxz System: Host: karrig-mint Kernel: 5.0...

Re: Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

Sorry for the late reply. I tried booting with the old kernels, but the error persisted trying to log-in, error said about cinnamon session not found and going to default one, but same happens over and over. At the same time I tried the advance options to see if I could repair it through some option...

Re: Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

I got connected through wi-fi via the adapter, should've specified that. Sadly due to the location of my computer I can't really use ethernet, only wi-fi. However internet worked fine until updating nvidia proprietary drivers. Then randomly it worked again, and after updating the kernels it just kin...

Re: Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

Status update: I logged back into Mint, internet worked somehow. Decided to update the kernel, told me there was a broken package, carried on installing by itself after I hit the close button on said message, rebooted and cannot log into cinnamon, hit the button and error occurs. I assume that whole...

[SOLVED] Wi-Fi unable to connect after updating nvidia proprietary driver (Linux mint 19 Cinnamon)

Newb here. A week or so ago I freshly installed Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon and dual-booted alongside Window 10. Upon installation Wi-Fi worked, albeit with weak signal compared to windows. I then updated drivers and other updates and stopped working, tried to fix it but was unable, googling the issue al...
