a. 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.

b. Do the same with the following three commands:

Code: Select all

rfkill list all
and:

Code: Select all

iwconfig
and:

Code: Select all

inxi -Nn

Well, the boot menu added a new entry: "previous versions"

selecting this allowed me to boot the old kernel and wifi works as usual.
Not much of a solution but it gets me back to a functioning system.
Wonder if this will ever get fixed?
good luck,
Bob
