Wifi stopped working

Post by INOV8TN » Sat May 11, 2019 1:24 am

I have an hp pavilion D1000 and wireless quit after an update.

I have a NETGEAR WNA3100 USB dongle that I'd like to install so I can get some help sorting out the internal wireless and return the dongle to it's rightful place.

It powers up and the system (mint 19) can find it.

Hope this is right path.

Thanks

Try this:
In the Grub bootloader menu, select the advanced options and boot from an older kernel.

Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output in your next message.

Do the same with the following four commands:

Code: Select all

rfkill list all

Code: Select all

iwconfig

Code: Select all

lsusb

Code: Select all

lspci
