I am using Dell Vostro which is:

uname -a:
Linux applect 3.4.0-030400-generic #201205210521 SMP Mon May 21 09:22:02 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I used to have frequent freeze issue. To solve that problem I upgraded kernel from 3.2.0 to 3.4.0 following this link.

Now There is no wifi on my system. Please help.

Output of some of the commands required are :
