Hi @esloch ,
You have the ethernet driver up and the wifi down as I read the output of inxi -FN
Network:
  Device-1: Realtek RTL810xE PCI Express Fast Ethernet driver: r8169
  IF: enp2s0 state: up speed: 100 Mbps duplex: full mac: 00:1f:16:04:9a:c4
  Device-2: Qualcomm Atheros AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adapter
  driver: ath5k
  IF: wlp8s0 state: down mac: 00:22:5f:0d:29:0a
  Device-3: Realtek 802.11n WLAN Adapter type: USB driver: option,option1

Please, post the output of the followin terminal command, in order to see whether the adapter is :
journalctl -xe | grep ath5k
Hope this help,
Regards

Are you knowledgeable to the point that you can tell if your PC is infected? You mentioned bleepingcomputer. If you have a stable connection right now, download and run ComboFix and Adwcleaner. You may have a browser hijack. If you're using Chrome, there is a setting in there to restore chrome to defaults. That'll at least nullify any browser hijack for now.

Basically, rule out infection first, then troubleshoot. All the Windows forums in the world won't give you a Kodi (https://kodi.onl/) nox (https://nox.uno/) solution if your PC is compromised.
