Description:
After upgrading core/linux-firmware from 20190618.acb56f2-1 to 20190628.70e4394-1, the wireless network adapter no longer functions. Downgrading back to 20190618.acb56f2-1 resolves the issue. Changing kernel versions didn't seem to have any effect so I suspect there is a problem with the
