Summary0005191: Wifi adapter not working after recent update
DescriptionThe wifi adapter was working before the update literally right before the update, and then once I updated it yesterday, the adapter is no longer working. Please fix ASAP!
Steps To ReproduceI went on youtube and tried several of the steps including going into network manager and changed the variable from false to true. Granted, I cannot access the web from the kali linux so I had to use youtube on my phone. Several youtube videos showed a site to download wifi adapter compatibility, but that did not work because I don't have access to the internet without the wifi adapter working.

Which chipset/driver? Is your system up to date (4.18)?

What variable did you change? Anything in dmesg related to the failure?

I changed the variable that was in the network manager config file from false to true like in the youtube video. My system is up to date and I am using an 802.11ac ultra-Range AC 1200 USB adapter.

I can't get onto the internet no matter what I do and it says that it can't find the wifi adapter.
