I am using a Dell Vostro 3560 with Win 7 x64 and Ubuntu 12.04 as dual boot. Earlier my room WiFi was getting detected in both Ubuntu and Windows 7. But recently I moved to a different location (country) and the WiFi in the hostel doesn't seem to be detected by Ubuntu, although I can connect it from Win 7 and it works fine in windows. Ubuntu shows a lot of other WiFi connections (available in that range); but wouldn't show the WiFi I need to connect to.
I have tried connecting using the hidden network option, but it doesn't work either. Can someone please help me on this?
