Have tried several approaches that seem to have worked for others but to no avail. Have a Realtek RTL8188EE controller, as the title of this question states, have tried numerous approaches suggested to be a fix via askubuntu. None seem to work. Namely this method, and this both of which involve invoking a systemd script to restart the network-manager.servic via script. Running the sudo systemctl commands in terminal 'manually' also fails to init the network service(s)
Unlike some other question(s) descriptions, this problem is not intermittent, both "Enable Networking" and the "Enable Wifi" selections are removed from their respective menus upon resume from suspend.
Any help with this is greatly appreciated, as I have had move between multiple locations lately, and each time I do so I must waste time and attention restoring the workspaces I utilized before I had to power down if I want to have internet access.
