I am using HP Pavilion 15 -no11tu which has been awarded the status of Enabled for Ubuntu.

When Ubuntu was shipped with my hp laptop,Everything worked fine including WiFi,webcam and Bluetooth.

Some days ago I formatted my System and reinstalled Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS which I downloaded for Ubuntu website. But Instead of connecting my system to internet and after doing all update and upgrade Ubuntu didn't detected my system WiFi and Bluetooth.

HP does not provide driver support for Linux.

My Configuuration::

htcoders@ubuntu:~$ sudo ifconfig
