Two or three years ago I installed 18.3 Mate on a pal's (who lives in a hotel and has wifi only) desktop and connected a Panda wifi adapter. All worked fine until the hotel had an electrical problem and now his pc doesn't connect. It doesn't even scan for wifi. Clicking on the network icon doesn't even show ANY wifi info - No "Enable wifi". It only shows "Enable Networking".
I brought the Panda home and it works on my desktop. Brought a laptop to his room and it connected to the hotel's wifi just fine.
I appreciate any assistance you may render. What to do?
