You lost the driver somehow. Try this, one line at a time:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install git dkms
git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git
cd rtlwifi_new/
git checkout extended
git checkout 0a751e3
cd
sudo dkms add rtlwifi_new
sudo dkms install rtlwifi-new/0.6
echo "options rtl8723de ant_sel=2" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723de.conf 
Reboot
