I use TP-Link TL-WN725N V2 Nano USB Wireless Dongle. After manually disconnecting from the network in Network Manager GNOME GUI, it became impossible to connect to the WI-FI network again.

Wireless network selector in GNOME does not display a list of available WiFi points. Turning wifi on / off in GNOME, pulling out / inserting TP-Link Dongle did not lead to anything.
Workaround from the article Getting Realtek 8188EU Wireless Adapters (and possibly other wireless Realtek chipsets!) worked. https://www.thelinuxrain.com/articles/getting-realtek-8188eu-wireless-adapters-to-work-in-linux-and-possibly-other-wireless-realtek-chipsets![screenshot](/uploads/da5f65a358ae0ded8703a3d8335064e8/screenshot.png)
