Need network reset

there was a temporary internet outage, when it came back everything was normal except my desktop , no wifi , did every thing recommended by MX and Mint forums with no luck, so I switch to Windows , it also had no wifi , and in the network section they offer a “network rest” so I went for it and the wifi started working , but it works only on windows ; I am using ethernet wire now and if I turn the hot spot on my phone the intenet works , so this can not be a hardware problem ; I would like to try a network reset here , hoping that because is an arch system it will work, the
windows reset specify that removes and reinstall all network adapters and set other network components back to the original settings ; could I please get some help with , thank you.

Welcome back.

First thing,

Those are Debian-based those do belong to the wonderful Linux family but it’s a different sibling. Not everything is going to work everywhere.


So what distro are you useing? Is it vanilla Arch? Or is it Endeavour? Or something else?

Please read this
Then run this command inxi -Fxxc0z | eos-sendlog in the terminal. Then post the URL/web address you get here.

This will help us to give you more specific help. With out knowing what system you have it’s hard to give good answers.

I have those install but in separate drives, so now I am on Endeavour;

Ah … I thought you tried Debian stuff in Arch. Your post is kind of confusing :slight_smile: .

Try this,

sudo systemctl restart systemd-networkd

Some more network-related stuff here.

no still not working

Check on Windows and turn off fast start up feature which is in power management on Windows. Fast startup feature is hidden. Then restart the computer. See if that helps.

Does your WiFi card when you run ifconfig like shown below?
