My problem seems to be very similar to that detailed at Ubuntu 22.04: RTL8821CE-based wifi not working but the fix there (removing backport-iwlwifi-dkms) did not work for me (I apparently do not have backport-iwlwifi-dkms on my computer).

I had run into an issue with this wifi card long (more than a year, I think) ago, and had resolved it, but I seem to be dead in the water again.

I am currently accessing the internet with an old usb dongle, which is not very good (no 5G).

Any computer savvy-ness I ever had is probably 30 years out of date, so please forgive my cluelessness.

Any help appreciated.

You've blacklisted the rtw88_8821ce module when installing some other driver.

Now when kernel upgraded from 5.15 to 5.19 that driver installed from source didn't build.

You can remove that blacklist rtw88_8821ce from /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and run

sudo modprobe rtw88_8821ce

If you aren't satisfied with the in-tree module performance when considering to install some other driver, make sure it is compatible with the 5.19 kernel.
