Ubuntu – How to enable Wifi connection in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 along with Windows 8.1. My Wifi is working in windows but not in Ubuntu. I gave the following command in the command terminal.

 nmcli nm
running         connected       enabled         enabled    enabled         enabled   
lspci -knn | grep Net -A2
03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Qualcomm Atheros Device [168c:0042] (rev 30)
    Subsystem: Lite-On Communications Inc Device [11ad:0806]

Though it says wifi is enabled, yet it's not working. I have an Acer Aspire E5-573 laptop.

Best Answer

This wireless adapter is not supported by linux kernel.

I suggest reporting this to launchpad. In this case there is a chance to get a fix. But you will need to co-operate with testing.

Connect your laptop to internet by wire and run in terminal

ubuntu-bug linux

and follow the instructions.
