Wireless Working earlier today, now not

Post by barddzen » Thu Sep 05, 2019 9:30 pm

I have a Dell Latitude E7240 Running Mint 19.2 Kernel 5 and everything was fine. I Was using my laptop earlier today and now later tonight the wireless will not work. The toggle in the panel dropdown I can turn on, but when I go into Network settings it says "WiFi Not available" but allows me to toggle it on.

confused happened between this morning and tonight? Nothing.

Any suggestions?

Is the switch on the left side turned to the on/enabled setting

Yeah, I'm an idiot, somehow that tiny little switch got flipped. /facepalm. I always forget it's there...
