Wifi stopped workikng

My wifi stopped working all of a sudden.
It shows available connections but when I choose my wifi network a notification appears telling the internet connection is disconnected…
Ethernet cable works.
I dual boot this laptop with Win10 and Wifi works there.
Today when booted to Manjaro XFCE it frooze on boot a couple of times. I thought something happened to GRUB.
The system is fully updated.
Heres some info:

I’m using this old laptop to test some Linux Distros in live mode with USB with Ventoy on it.
I plan to ditch W10 since tis too slow.
I want to keep using Manjaro (Arch based) and choose an Distro based on Debian/Ubuntu
The wifi was working fine last night…

The Wi-Fi interface is down. Are you sure that you have not inadvertently switched off Wi-Fi (with a hardware switch) or in the network manager?

Try different kernel. Kernel 5.9 is EOL(end of life). Try 5.10 or 5.11 (I use 5.4 since I had issues with other kernels). I guess changing kernel might solve your problem
