When installing any kernel other than the standard one, the drivers do not work, installed it through the Application Center

EOS 6 Gtx 850m ASUS g550 driver 460,470

1 Answer 1


Not sure if that is the same case, but I had to install linux-headers-generic-hwe-20.04 (I already had linux-image-generic-hwe-20.04 installed) in order to have my Broadcom wifi driver bcmwl-kernel-source automatically reinstalled for each new kernel update.

Before that, bcmwl-kernel-source was installed only with 5.4.x kernel.

Maybe I'm way off, but it's safe to try.
