That's probably your problem. 3.13.0-37 is the latest "trusty" kernel. None of the 16 series has been properly tested yet and may contain regressions. I suggest you reinstall 3.13.0-37 and see what happens.

Basic rule-of-thumb for newbies: if it isn't in Software Manager or Update Manager (NOT Synaptic), you don't need it.

Open terminal and run this

Code: Select all

wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && \
chmod +x wireless_script && \
./wireless_script
and post the info from the wireless-info.txt file and hopefully a solution can be found for your wifi issues.

Don't worry about your kernel, 3.16.0-34 is being used in Ubuntu 14.04.2 and Ubuntu 14.10 and I had no issues with LM 17.1 and kernel 3.16.0-32
