I have a Dell Latitude E5510 I dual boot with Windows 7 and the wifi works good with Windows 7 but when I load in on Ubuntu it fails to make a connection I had to put a USB Wifi adapter in to get wifi. I would really like to know how to fix this so I don't have to use a USB Wifi stick.

Upon running Additional Drivers, if you have broadcom STA driver activated, try removing it. Restart and see if your wireless works.
