Wifi Stops working after updating

I installed "manjaro-awesome-18.0-stable-x86_64.iso", and The Wifi worked alright, and connected to both

  1. my personal mobile hot spot
  2. my college provided wifi (wpa2-enterprise).

After install without any tinkering required. (same with the live bootable usb)
but after i updated the system (did not change the kernel Linux 4.19.49-1) the wifi stopped connecting to the college network and keeps disconnecting from the mobile hot spot around every 60s.

I tried to downgrade the networkmanager to the one present in the live usb but it did not work.

I have reinstalled a fresh os and wifi is working again I have yet to update anything please assist on what should i do.

should I update ignoring the network connecting related software ? if yes, then which one should i ignore?

Please post

First copy and paste your text/terminal/code into the post
Then select the text/code and click the post edit toolbar button </> .

Show us some journactl info. It should reveal the issue (hopefully):

journalctl -b -p3

EDIT: Ah, just noticed you already reinstalled the system. The command above is helpful if you already have the issue. I guess, @admdb may help.

I think that to really know what went wrong you need to:

  • do a system backup with timeshift
  • update and if the issue is there, you can look for errors, try some solutions, etc. in worst case when you need quickly workable wifi, you can use timeshift to restore old system version.

I would definitely ignore the following packages ■■■■■ dkms-git, ■■■■■ as well as ■■■■■, and whatever you do, don't update ■■■■■.

I'll leave it to you to fill in the blanks as you obviously do not believe that detailed specifics are required. :wink:

I apologize for the late reply, I was out of town and unable to access my laptop.

Your supplied solution solved most of the problems but I am still unable to connect to the college network (WPA2-enterprise). Even when all the details supplied are correct, it was functioning properly before.
