Literally, in Settings window OS doesn’t see any connection as though there is no cable connected to my PC. It seems it erases or doesn’t recognize the network driver. So such a situation happens every 1-2 weeks in the morning after I turn on the PC and then I have to reinstall the driver each time. Frankly, I’m not 100% sure that it happens after installing updates, because I don’t manually install updates like with
sudo apt update (maybe OS does it automatically?).
My motherboard is ASUS Z490-A Pro (it was released in this year). Ubuntu version is 20.04. When I installed Ubuntu there was no driver for the corresponding network adapter coming along with the distribution, so I had to check Realtek website to download the driver.
Ubuntu developers definitely didn’t include this driver in the distribution.
How can I avoid installing the driver every time Ubuntu updates? (and so maybe I should tell Ubuntu developers to include this driver into the next Ubuntu updates?)
