First let me say that I have been using Ubuntu for about 2 years now and have developed a loyalty to this OS! However, this is my first time posting a question...
I just purchased a Dell Inspiron 3135 laptop a couple of days ago, and I successfully got Ubuntu 12.04 LTS loaded to the device. Almost everything works perfectly - the only issue I have is my wireless capability (And touchscreen interface, but I can live without that for now). I have no problem connecting via Bluetooth to devices in my home. However, in order to access the internet I have to physically connect an Ethernet cable.
Things I’ve tried to no avail:
Downloading the proprietary driver from the Dell website and installed it via the Wireless Network Drivers application (Dell's driver only supports Win 8.1, what a shock there)
Re-installing Ubuntu (Don't know what I thought that would do)
If ANYONE has experience with this issue, slash can help me out here at all, your help would be much appreciated. Thanks for your time, and Peace & Love from Baltimore.
