I am currently using Ubuntu 22.04. I have a USB type WiFi adaptor to connect to a wireless network, but on enabling the WiFi I do not see any network available to connect with. I have tried the available methods already, but it didn't work. On removing WiFi adaptor the WiFi option disappears from menu, so I am assuming the system is detecting the WiFi adaptor but showing no network to connect.
No wifi option on removing adaptor:
After adding wifi adaptor to the usb port:

lsusb(you'll need to write this into a terminal. you can open a terminal from the applications menu). And if you can spot which one is the Wi-Fi adaptor, can you add the output of "lsusb -D /dev/bus/usb/XXX/YYY" where XXX is the Bus number, and YYY is the device number written on the same line with the Wi-Fi adapter. If you can't find it just add the output of
lsusb -D /dev/bus/usb/001/002. I assume that you have the Wi-Fi adapter still on the same USB port on your computer, if you plugged your Wi-Fi adapter on an other USB port you'll need to adjust the numbers accordingly.
