Can you even be able to upgrade to latest kernel 5.10.7 in core repository
by doing as root in a terminal:
# urpmi --auto-update
and reboot

And?

Is this working?
Which device does not run?

If possible, remove unnecessary devices and please do an other try.
Please tell us.

HI'm having some success after updating again.  I will be testing each adapter again but this time individually and will post the results. Maybe having more than one adapter installed seemed to cause issues?
Comment 11 John W 2021-01-15 01:33:02 CET
Here are the preliminary results:

The Intel 8260 & 7260 worked after updating. 

The Linksys WUSB6300 works but the net_applet shows it disconnected incorrectly when it is connected. It says "connecting" when hovering the mouse over it. But never changes the icon to reflect the actual status.

Some of the N adapters work after switching Wireless G off the router.

The G adapters won't connect to mixed B/G mode.  Still have to try G only to see if it works.

I think there is another bug about this:
 https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24349
See point 3.

Adapters should always select the best mode B/G/N/A or WiFi 6, on a best carrying/signal handling. This is the Wireless Router that it has the last word.

Also, the choose between A/B/G/N is beyond the scope of our tools.

If devices are running fine, please close this bug report.
For netapplet not updating the correct state, you should tell in Bug https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24349
Comment 14 Aurelien Oudelet 2021-01-28 21:16:45 CET
So, what's the status of this?

Target Milestone: --- => Mageia 8
Keywords: (none) => NEEDINFO

Comment 15 John W 2021-01-31 09:10:17 CET
Only supporting Wireless AC and newer?  I can get AC to work. N sometimes.  

The net_applet doesn't always reflect the corrent status.
Comment 16 Aurelien Oudelet 2021-02-01 14:41:58 CET
This does not help.

Please make a board with
1) One device
2) Tested operating mode.

I do think there are too many devices and too many variables here to understand the issue.
Same questions that Bug 28075:
Can your Power System Unit deliver sufficient power to all your devices?
Please test with one device at time.
