How to configure two or more network interfaces to work simultaneously on different users I log into linux
in flag

I have 2 nics on my pc and I need to configure them to work simultaneously on each user I log in, one nic per user, (knowing that you can change the user and the programs of one keep running even if logged in to another user). I want to run webscraping via python and I need to use a VPN connection for each process. It's possible?

I installed firewall-configuration and lost the wifi

to keep the PC safe, I installed firewall-configuration from Ubuntu software:

enter image description here

As soon as the installation was over, I lost the WiFi connection (and even Rstudio cannot connect with R, by the way). I removed it with sudo apt-get remove firewall-config but the WiFi is still dead.

How can I reestablish the wifi? and do I need a firewall in ubuntu? and an antivirus? (if yes, is clamAV OK?)
