A week or so ago I freshly installed Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon and dual-booted alongside Window 10. Upon installation Wi-Fi worked, albeit with weak signal compared to windows. I then updated drivers and other updates and stopped working, tried to fix it but was unable, googling the issue also didn't help. Today I timeshifted to fresh install and Wi-Fi worked, so I updated nvidia proprietary drivers and nothing else, and Wi-Fi stopped working, it stays for ever in an endless loop of trying to connect and failing. I don't know if it's due to my Wi-Fi adapter or what exactly is the issue here. My Wi-Fi adapter is a tp-link TL-WN822N, I tried looking that up but the solutions that were out there didn't really help. I'm pretty much out of ideas and I don't really know how to do anything with Linux.
Thanks in advance.
