Try rebooting the router .. or wait for the lease to expire.

:o weirdness, router reboot didn't help, but moving the USB dongle to a different spot did.

;) and your instructions worked flawlessly once again... :-*

Even more happily, the wifi dongle works on its own after reboot without needing to be removed/reinserted

Well today's kernel update broke the wifi's Realtek drivers again... the log file tells me...

Code: [Select]
System 8812au: version magic '4.15.0-23-generic SMP mod_unload " should be "4.15.0-24-generic SMP mod_unload "


leading me to hunt for the file to change it... discovered all the drivers down in /usr /src

or would it be better to just uninstall and reinstall wifi drivers?

Code: [Select]
sudo apt remove --purge rtl8812au-dkms
sudo apt install rtl8812au-dkms

reboot, working fine now... much simpler than locating where that line of code was to be found...
