Hello!

I remove existing WiFi profiles by using Terminal, reboot and connect to WiFi again.
Unfortunately it changes nothing :(. I still can not to connect to WiFi after disconnection.

What I can do now?
How to make WiFi work properly?

Many thanks for support!

Does wifi work at all .. before you disconnect ?

Yes. WiFi work only when it automatically connect to one of the known networks after reboot.
Then, if I try to connect to another network or connect to the same network after disconnecting, it can not to connect.

Thanks for support!

I realise this would only be a workaround, but considering the driver you're having to use is kind of an 'out of tree' hack in the first place it's possibly the best we can achieve until the actual driver makes it into the kernel.

What happens if you change network, then disable networking altogether (right-click the network manager icon in the system tray and UNtick "Enable Networking"), then re-enable it again ?

Unfortunately even after I disable networking alltogether and then re-enable it, WiFi still not working.

How do You think, when the actual driver can appear into the kernel?

Many thanks for support!

No idea, unless RealTek themselves submit it to the kernel it will likely be some time before a third party driver is proven and accepted.

That said I have no idea how long this chipset has been out .. so for all I know it could already be in the latest kernel.



Maybe try booting a Xubuntu 19.10 LiveUSB and see if wireless is working OOTB .. if it is, maybe we could simply install the 5.3 kernel in Peppermint

But test it in a 19.10 LiveUSB FIRST .. no point risking your Peppermint install for no reason.
