Recently I have upgraded my OS from 12.10 to 13.04, its working just fine.
I was not facing this problem till today but I am not able to connect to a particular WiFi from the morning. I have two WiFi here & I am able to connect to other one.
As for the WiFi, there is no issue as other persons who are using Window can connect with that just fine. How to resolve this problem I don't know?
Note - I have restarted the WiFi as well as the system two times to overcome this issue.
Edited for giving more info:
