OSX can no longer connect to Wifi

Hi, and thanks in advance,

I hard-powered down my mac mini (2012) while it was booting up, and since then, osx has been unable to connect to any wifi networks. It sees the networks, and asks for passwords if appropriate, but fails to connect. When using windows via bootcamp, I'm able to connect to wifi perfectly, so I assume something is corrupted in my OSX settings.

Steps I've tried already (that have been unsuccesful):

Upgrading OSX to Catalina (interestingly, this resolved the issue immediately after upgrade, but it then went back to not working, perhaps a clue?)
Deleting preference files from the library and restarting
Deleting wifi from the network preferences page
creating a new OSX account

I'm pretty suck at this point, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again
