As the title says, my ethernet card (Qualcomm Atheros Killer E220x) will not connect to the internet after the last update.
I have tried a couple of things to see if they would help. First, I used the System Settings Connections dialog to create a new connection, so I could fiddle with the parameters without risk of borking things worse. This went nowhere, so I clicked to delete it, but somehow my original connection got deleted. Next, I switched kernels from 5.4.13-3 back to 4.19.97-1. This also went nowhere, but I am still running the older kernel.
So, apparently a driver or something was "updated," or otherwise changed from something that worked perfectly fine to something that isn't working at all for me. This is currently the only OS on the only PC I am currently running, and I just need it to work. I have found and read some posts from this forum which addressed similar issues in the past, but I don't know which package, etc., may have caused the problem, and I have limited time to screw with this thing to get it online again. Tethering through my phone is not a viable option for more than another day or two. Please advise. Thank you.
