Sometimes when I boot Ubuntu 20.04 there's no wifi icon & settings
has no wifi category. This hasn't happened when I boot Win10 on this pc.
pc: asus f512ja-oh36
Network: Device-1: Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650i 160MHz Wireless
Network Adapter driver: iwlwifi
IF: wlo1 state: up
TIA Bill S.
It happens sometimes? Maybe after leaving Windows©?
If you are not already make sure Windows© shuts down completely
or it may leave you some problems.
Isn't that sitting on the PCI Express bus ?
If so, PCI Express has a RESET signal, and when you
change OSes, the module will receive a whack.
Other Linux systems are capable of causing
disruption when improperly shut down and rebooting to
another system. At LUG meetings I used to install
and also load up systems from Flash Drive or optical
disk and noted this effect. Ubuntu could do this
quite often as I recall and to get the WiFi working
I had to shutdown, unplug and then remove the battery to
clear the malfunction.
My base system is PCLinuxOS 64 by the way
and I run several other systems in Virtual Box these
