After I install updates via the software updater, I restart the computer, as suggested, however, after the restart I cannot find wireless networks and I cannot get the network interface to activate using
sudo wlan0 up
After a quick search on the web I found that I'm not the only one having this problem and a quick fix is to suspend and then get immediately back the session (ready: push the power button twice).
I encounter this problem only after updates, it is not that annoying however it should not happen. Does someone know how to fix it?
I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a HP Pavilion laptop.
