Zorin WiFi Issues

So today, after a Zorin OS update, my Wi-Fi had stopped working, I've been using Zorin OS for about a year now, and I had only gotten this problem at the start, but it was an easy fix, just had to restart the computer.

This time I restarted my computer and checked, but it didn’t work. I even unplugged my Wi-Fi adapter and plugged it in again, but it still didn’t work, any idea how to fix this issue?

My computer is a custom built:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3500X

GPU: Nvidia GTX GeForce 1650

Motherboard: TUF Gaming B550M Plus Wi-Fi

16GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX

Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 SSD

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

It looks like you are using USB dongle for WiFi.
Can you issue the following command and paste the result?


Also, had you installed a DKMS patch previously?

Thanks for the help! But i have fixed the issue. It was some problem with the USB port on my PC, none of my other USB's were working on that port, when i switched it to another port, my WiFi came back immediately.


When I was involved in a system integration business, one of the Golden Rules was: suspect the connectors first
It is still the case after all those years :smile:
