I have 13.10 installed on my E6320. It has the INTEL Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 802.11n network card. I cannot for the life of me, figure out how to enable this card so that it is detected. I have tried using:

$ lspci

$ lspci | less

$ lspci | grep -i eth

It is nowhere to be found. Wired works. Where to start?

lspci -nn | grep 0280

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 [8086:422b] (rev 1a)

uname -a

Please edit your question to add the result of: sudo modprobe iwlwifi and also: dmesg | grep iwl –  chili555 Feb 25 '14 at 23:49
@chili555 those results have been updated to the original post –  user252304 Feb 26 '14 at 14:20
@chili555, when I say returns nothing I mean there is no error given, the term simply returns to ~$. –  user252304 Feb 26 '14 at 14:26
Wow! How about: cat /var/log/syslog | grep iwl or cat /var/log/syslog.1 | grep iwl If the output is very large, post it here and give us the link: paste.ubuntu.com –  chili555 Feb 26 '14 at 15:13
