I installed EO yesterday and I've had a couples of bugs related to wifi.

First, Hera will recognize my Mercusys N150 Wireless USB Adapter(MW150US) but only when I unplug it and then plug it again. When I boot I wont be able to use wifi even trying:

sudo nmcli radio wifi on

Following other threads I tried these commands with these outputs:

    $ lshw -C network

rfkill list all

Rfkill listed nothing.

I've been reading and it seems to be a Pantheon problem rather than kernel or drivers. Is there a script or something I can run at startup to solve this?

Second, the enable/disable botton of the system tray will block my wifi unless I do:

sudo nmcli radio wifi on

So my solution is to not touch it anymore. (Pretty bad one though) Is there a better fix to this?
