I am having an issue with my WiFi adapter on Zorin OS. When I first turn on my computer and boot into Zorin OS, my adapter is unable to connect. But, If I boot into Windows first, and then switch back to Zorin OS, my adapter is able to connect to the network.
I have tried troubleshooting and looking for solutions online, but I have not been able to find a fix for this problem. Has anyone else experienced this issue or know of a solution? I would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
Please could you give us the make and model of the wifi adapter - is it USB or is this a desktop PCIe wifi adapter?
Thanks for the photos. Whilst in Zorin and with the adapter attached, please ipen a terminal and enter:
and post back the results please.

Looks like you have to recompile the driver after each Linux kernel update.
For future reference I would advise purchasing hardware from proven Linux vendors:
