« on: February 10, 2020, 11:32:39 am »

I just had to run a bios update yesterday to be able to use a piece of hardware i have and now my wifi is completely missing and I have no idea how to go about this one. I would appreciate a little knowlege my way or a point in the right forum direction please I really dont wanna have to wipe this distro again.

Do you have an earlier kernel you may select at boot up time to see if your wifi returns? There seems to be a bit of a bug with some systems and the 5.3.0-28-96 kernel.
