Hello! This is my first dumb question I’ve ever asked the linux community! I’m very new so if this is obvious, I apologize. What I’m looking to do is disable the driver for the internal pci wifi. Its an old laptop so I got a new usb wifi plugin to connect to 5GHz and speed things up. The wifi donggle works great, but I get the annoying problem of the internal wifi adapter connecting to the 2.4GHz band at the same time. I dont need the internal to work, so I want to just disable it, but even as root using modprobe -r the driver just starts up again on reboot. I can’t seem to find and uninstall the driver once disabled, but I would be content just having the system know to permanently ignore it or disable on startup each time. Drivers name is ath9k for reference
TLDR; Is there a way to automatically disable/ignore a driver on start up?
