I recently installed Xubuntu 18.04 on a computer previously running windows 10. I'm using a ASUS usb device to connect to the internet. I can connect to my mobile hotspot, so the ASUS USB wireless device is working. I cannot connect to my dual band ASUS RT-AC68R home network. I've triple checked the password and have successfully connected other devices to my home network, so the network is working. My Xubuntu PC doesn't appear to connect to the home network at all.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

$ sudo lshw -class network
