    Wlan0 enables itself automatically apparently

    I sometimes plug a usb wifi card in my laptop which is a bit more powerful than the laptop's one.
    I then disable Wlan0 (the laptop's wifi card) this way in kali linux 2022 terminal:

    sudo ifconfig wlan0 down

    and let only wlan1 (the external usb wifi card) running.

    It works, but after a while I found that wlan0 is running again by typing ifconfig.
    Why does Wlan0 get back running, automatically apparently?

    use ip instead of ifconfig

    └─$ sudo ip link set wlan0 down
