comment Netgear A6100 on ubuntu 14.04
@JeffSmith It works perfectly for me just now. Please try again. Did you copy and paste the commands from above to your terminal?

I suspect that the issue is that exactly what you are trying to do, have both active at the same time and let wireless take over if the ethernet > powerline fails, is, by the design of Network Manager, not allowed. It defaults to ethernet and disables wireless by design if ethernet is available. I assume your question is how to bypass the default, then. Does the wireless start and run as expected if you reboot with the ethernet detached?

Are there any clues in the log? dmesg | grep wlx Or here? rfkill list all

Does it start working if you do: sudo dhclient enp2s0 Or else: sudo service network-manager restart?

The driver for your device, alx is included in Ubuntu 15.10 by default. Please load it: sudo modprobe alx, then check the message log for clues: dmesg | grep -e 02:00 -e alxPlease post the result.

Crazy! It worked two hours ago. Until I can find the firmware again, I'm stuck.

Then the driver ath10k_pci will load and we will determine what firmware it is missing from the message log: dmesg | grep ath. Then I will write an answer showing where and what firmware to download on some other computer, transfer it on a USB and install it.

Your device isn't covered in Ubuntu until 15.10. I urge you to reinstall 15.10 and then we can easily get the firmware on a USB key.
