    Here is the full answer to lsusb:

    BUs 001 Device 006 ID 0bda:8179 Realtek SEmiconductor Corp. RTL 8188 EUS 802.11h wireless network adapter

    I tried to plug into another USB port but the situation remains, after booting to linux the adapter is nopt working, while it works like a breeze when booting into Winodws7

    With the user “root”, can you please show us the output of:
    Code:
     # lsusb -v -s 001:006
    Can you also, please take a look into the systemd Journal?
    • With the user “root”, “journalctl --this-boot”.
    • Anything related to “RTL 8188” and, the associated device, is of interest.

    I have the responses to these commands but how can I copy the bash window content in order to send you a text file containing it. I tried ctr shift c to copy but I cannot paste it either by ctr shift V or ctr V.
    The journal is very extensive I cannot copy it by hand...

    Two choices:
    for a very long paste, redirect the command output to a file instead, like:
    Code:
    journalctl --this-boot > journal.txt
    then work with the text file;

    for a short copy, select the output to copy by dragging your mouse over the terminal, then CTRL+SHIFT+C should copy to the clipboard (then the usual CTRL+V should paste into the editor window).

    You don't have to.

    Please, do the following – the example is, “What happens when I plug a USB-Stick into the machine and then, remove it.”:
    Code:
     # journalctl --follow

    Therefore, taking the above example as a template, remove your USB-WiFi device, with the user “root” in a Terminal Window: “journalctl --follow”, plug in your USB-WiFi device and, note the journal trace – <Ctrl-C> to stop the trace – highlight the Journal text in the Terminal Window – either <Shift-Ctrl-C> or, with the mouse <Right-Click> “Copy”, to copy the text off the the Paste Buffer – paste the text into a newly created text file.
    • Once the text file has been saved, you can use it's contents as a basis to search the Journal for the events which occur when your USB-WiFi device is “discovered” by the Linux Kernel, either at boot time or, any other time …


    Looking at everything which is going on here, I suspect that, either:
    1. At each boot the USB-Hub responsible for the port where your USB-WiFi device is plugged in, is getting a different USB-Bus address or,
    2. Your machine is suffering from an intermittent issue with that USB-Hub – the same issue that one of my Laptops suffers from time to time – a reboot usually, mostly always, fixes the issue …


    If, the problem is the former, you'll need multiple Network Manager profiles for each possible USB-Bus address your USB WiFi device receives at boot time.
    • Ditto for Wicked or, any other method being used to manage the machine's network …

    Thank you I will follow your advice. Meanwhile a different question maybe you can answer me within this thread (I do not know how to start a new thread I cannot find the option on your website). So my question is. how do I know whether my OPenSUSE Leap 15.1 is a 323 or 64 bit linux version?

    It's only 64-bit.
    • The 32-bit version was dropped several years ago with Leap 42.1.

    Code:
    uname -i
    will show you the architecture of your installed system, e.g. x86_64 for 64 bit.
