    Best linux distro for beginner

    Wifi adapter needs to be reconnected after using windows

    Was this adapter installed and used at the time you installed Manjaro. Did you update Manjaro after you installed it and if not update it. Hopefully someone with knowledge about Manjaro KDE will be by to help.
