Wireless no Longer Works after Mate update - LTS 16.04.1


#1

Hello,

I got a popup to update my Mate this morning. After the update, I rebooted my computer as requested and now my wireless does not work and my wireless adapter seems to have disappeared.

Regards,

John.

Don’t everyone try to help at the same time now.

Your first message was more of a statement than a plea for help. It also gives few details. Do you know the make and model of the wireless card? A quick Google with some generic terms limited to the last month gives - https://askubuntu.com/questions/1052403/how-can-i-fix-broadcom-driver-wifi-with-4-15-0-24-kernel-on-ubuntu-16-04 .
