Ubuntu: Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 and TP-Link T4UH [closed]


Since today my USB Dongle for WIFI does not work anymore. My kernel is 4.10.0-38 and my OS Ubuntu GNOME 17.04

lsusb output does not show the device on any USB Port - yes I tested the port with a normal USB Stick - they are working fine.

The dongle seems to work fine too, since I dual boot with Win7 and that system has an Internet connection via the dongle.

Any ideas why something like this can happen from one day to another? Should I post a log or something?

lsusb shows



I don't know why this just happend now, but this fixed my problem.

sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf  

and add these lines

[device]  wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no  

Apperently my mac-adresse was changing constantly, which is a known 17.04 bug.
