    Coredy WA-AE610 USB Wifi card not working after update.

    Hi everyone, first time posting, I've been using Ubuntu for years but I'm definitely no expert, I mostly use it for quite specific film/video stuff so apologies if there's not a lot of info initially to go on here or I'm slow on the uptake.

    I've hit a snag with a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04. After the initial install I have installed the latest driver for my wireless card a Coredy WA-AE610 (http://www.coredytech.com/goods-99-C...ManualsDrivers). The driver install works perfectly, wifi network is functional and all good. As it's a fresh install there are a fair amount of updates required. After installing this big system update the wireless USB adapter no longer works, the green light on the device doesn't come on either.

    I was thinking that it's possible that the update included some wireless drivers that are now conflicting with the previously installed drivers from Coredy but I've not found anything on the forums or anywhere else that seems to have the answer I'm looking for.

    As a start, here's the output from
    Code:
    sudo lshw -class network
    it looks like the wireless interface is disabled but I'm not sure why or what's disabling it.

    Code:

    Re: Coredy WA-AE610 USB Wifi card not working after update.

    Strange, here kernel 4.4.0-67 is running?! Any chance to run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    via cable? Please run
    Code:
    lspci -nnk 
    lsusb
    rfkill list
    lsmod
    iwconfig
    dkms status
    to show the exact hardware. Maybe reinstalling the driver helps because dkms is not working correctly (or is not installed?!).
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dkms
    According to the dkms.conf file it is driver mt7610u_sta. Use this PPA instead:

    https://launchpad.net/~hanipouspilot...ubuntu/rtlwifi
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi 
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install mt7610u-dkms

    Re: Coredy WA-AE610 USB Wifi card not working after update.

    I had done the initial update using sudo apt-get upgrade when I tried it this time it just had one small package update, sudo apt-get dist-upgrade did the following...

    Code:
    The following NEW packages will be installed
      libhardware2 libhybris libhybris-common1 libmedia1 libsnapd-glib1 linux-headers-4.4.0-66 linux-headers-4.4.0-66-generic linux-image-4.4.0-66-generic
      linux-image-extra-4.4.0-66-generic snap-confine snapd-login-service
    The following packages will be upgraded:
      gnome-software gnome-software-common liboxideqt-qmlplugin liboxideqtcore0 liboxideqtquick0 linux-generic linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic oxideqt-codecs
      qml-module-ubuntu-web snapd ubuntu-core-launcher ubuntu-software webapp-container webbrowser-app
    15 to upgrade, 11 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.
    Need to get 115 MB of archives.
    After this operation, 353 MB of additional disk space will be used.
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y
    This is the output for the other commands...

    dkms appears to be working ok... I've installed the driver you mentioned from the other PPA and nothing has changed. I'll reboot no though and post back in a minute if the problem is fixed.

    Re: Coredy WA-AE610 USB Wifi card not working after update.

    No improvement after reboot... in fact I now can't see the option to enable/disable wifi networks. iwconfig now outputs...
    Code:
    ukgff@UKGFF:~$ iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
