The last post had used that command and there were no results. Some of the newer machines do have internal USB wifi and don't have a PCI wifi device

Well the good news is...i think(thanks to this guy http://dailylinuxuser.com/2016/07/how-t ... ssues.html 0) that its fixed....

i used this command sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf then added rtl8xxxu to the blacklist list and saved it....now everytime i boot the wifi takes about 5 seconds and connects....and this is after loads of deliberate reboots just to test things.

Thanks all.......until it breaks again lol
