The wifi device TP-LINK TL-WN823N was previously working, as in previous thread: TP-Link TL-WN823N v3 wifi dongle not detected
But now it is not detected again.
I re-followed the instructions in the previous thread but it is still not detected.

lsmod | grep cfg; mokutil --sb-state
(after installing mokutil):

As I recall, Bus 02 Device 005: ID 2357:0109
is the one which had the functioning wifi usb before.
If you have internet access by any other means (wired or through USB tethering), you can installed the RTL8192EU drivers from Mange's GitHub repo. Here are the steps as described on the GitHub page:
Building and installing using DKMS
Install DKMS and other required tools:
sudo apt-get install git linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
Clone this repository and change your directory to cloned path.
git clone https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver cd rtl8192eu-linux-driver
Add the driver to DKMS. This will copy the source to a system directory so that it can used to rebuild the module on kernel upgrades.
sudo dkms add .
Build and install the driver.
sudo dkms install rtl8192eu/1.0
Distributions based on Debian & Ubuntu have RTL8XXXU driver present & running in kernelspace. To use our RTL8192EU driver, we need to blacklist RTL8XXXU.
echo "blacklist rtl8xxxu" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8xxxu.conf
Force RTL8192EU Driver to be active from boot.
echo -e "8192eunnloop" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
Newer versions of Ubuntu has weird plugging/replugging issue (Check #94). This includes weird idling issues, To fix this:
echo "options 8192eu rtw_power_mgnt=0 rtw_enusbss=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/8192eu.conf
Update changes to Grub & initramfs
sudo update-grub; sudo update-initramfs -u
Reboot system to load new changes from newly generated initramfs.
systemctl reboot -i
After the reboot, you can check that your kernel has loaded the right module:
sudo lshw -c network
You should see the line
