A while back I was automatically upgraded to kernel 4.15.0-47 but on rebooting I noticed that my wireless Logitech mouse M510 was not working at the login screen and when I logged in the WiFi would not activate (even though the security info etc screen was available).  I returned to previous kernel -46 and all was OK.  I have subsequently tried all higher 4.15.0 kernels and some 4.18.0 available through the update manager list kernels function - all produce dead mouse and no WiFi.  I don't want to be stuck on my present kernel forever due to security worries.  Any suggestions?
I have booted  other Live USB distros onto this machine and they all work with my mouse and WiFi just fine with their later kernel versions:
Zorin 15 Beta   4.18.0-16,    Netrunner 19.0.1    4.19.0-1    and KDE neon 5.15.4     4.18.0-17

Also as a matter that I stumbled across recently my NVidia drivers are provided in a flatpak even though I installed them in the regular manner using the Additional Drivers application.  Is this the new normal?
AHA!  Just inspected your ath9k output and see:  nvidia: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel
Is this the problem?  Of course I did not install NVidia drivers in testing Live Distros so their kernels would work but it appears that the NVidia flatpak is tainting the kernel which presently works -46 but upgrading kernel fails.
If this is the problem, how do I totally remove NVidia flatpak so I can try reinstalling through Additional Drivers again?  If that works (without flatpak) I would try again to upgrade kernel (incidentally I have never been offered an upgrade since I went back to -46 - is that normal?)

Have you tried disabling SecureBoot in your BIOS ?

And can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo iwlist scan

My 2008 old ASUS machine does not have a UEFI BIOS and hence no Secure Boot to turn off (I did just recheck to make sure).

Below is the output you requested:

Well wireless appears to be working ???

Have you tried deleting the wireless profile in networkmanager, and recreating it ?

what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ping -c 5 8.8.8.8
and
Code: [Select]
ping -c 5 google.com

I have not tried deleting wireless profile  - by networkmanager do you mean Network Connections in the menu? I am not sure this would achieve desired result as Live Distros run on this profile (which is standard) - but they were not running NVidia drivers.  Unfortunately cannot install Nvidia drivers in Live distros and reboot as not persistent and they are not installed until reboot I understand?
Just to clarify ALL my responses to you have been when I am running kernel 4.15.0-46 as obviously I have no wifi  in higher kernels (or mouse - but I could use USB mouse!).  I could get you any useful outputs when running higher kernels and save them to send when I revert to -46 kernel.
Really don't want to abandon Peppermint as it is my favourite distro and has the best forums.  When is Peppermint 10 due out - should be soon I hope?  Will stay on present kernel until then if we cannot reach a solution.
Thanks for your help as always.
Here are the ping outputs you requested:

Yes, the output should be from the non-working kernel otherwise it's no use to diagnose why it's not working.

Peppermint 10 .. hopefully about a week or thereabouts.

Maybe you should consider trying the HWE whilst you wait for Peppermint 10

Thanks for your replies and sorry for the mixup over which kernel you wanted to check.
Here is the same info from the 4.18.0.-20 kernel:

Don't know if this helps or not as wireless interface is unreachable with this kernel. However I note the extra warnings at the end of the dmesg output which to me implies the kernel is being "messed up" - is this because of the NVidia driver being a flatpak?  Also the ACPI warning about System10 range conflicts has gone.
 If you can suggest anything I would appreciate your input in case I have the same problem in Peppermint 10 (I will be doing a fresh install rather than an upgrade - I quite enjoy the customization necessary to meet my personal requirements).
You have not mentioned whether my NVidia driver via flatpak is normal or an aberration?  I have not seen this before but it seems to be working in 4.15.0-46 even though there is the same message about tainting the kernel?

Well I've never known additional drivers install nvidia as a flatpak.

Try removing it:-
Code: [Select]
sudo flatpak remove org.freedesktop.Platform.GL.nvidia-340-107/x86_64/1.4
sudo flatpak remove org.freedesktop.Platform.html5-codecs/x86_64/18.08
sudo flatpak remove org.gnome.Platform/x86_64/3.30

I removed the NVidia flatpak - I don't know where that came from!  Then I found out that I had the regular NVidia version installed and it was working.  So I uninstalled that via Synaptic and rebooted into 4.18.0-20 kernel but still no wifi or wireless mouse :( Oh well I tried!
Rebooted kernel 4.15.0-46 and reinstalled NVidia drivers and rebooted again.  All working well and will not fiddle any more, but hoping that Pep10 will work for me with later kernel (which I assume will be included by default).
{EDIT}
Late Breaking News: In very recent update kernel 4.15.0-50 arrived , so even though -47 and -48 had failed I gave it one last chance and rebooted into -50 and VOILA it worked!  So am now operating in -50.  Unfortunately 4.18.0-20 still doesn't work but maybe 4.19.0 or higher might if available in Pep10.
 
Thanks for all your trouble and looking forward with anticipation to Pep10!
