Found an answer: sudo mv /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-3160-12.ucode /lib/firmware/backup-iwlwifi-3160-12.ucode sudo mv /lib/firmware/iwlwifi-3160-10.ucode /lib/firmware/backup-iwlwifi-3160-10.ucode Reboot. Seems to be an issue with the firmware. After reboot I was able to connect again, so for me it is working.

I suspect that your wireless device uses the proprietary Broadcom STA driver. Installing this driver remarkably blacklists the ethernet driver b44 and its dependency ssb. When b44 and ssb load, they usually bring along b43, the wrong and conflicting driver for your wireless. That's why the blacklist. Please load the driver for the ethernet: sudo modprobe ...

As you'll be on the same LAN you might be vulnerable to what's called a man-in-the-middle attack. An attacker could make his computer tell your computer that it's the router and route all your traffic through his machine, spying on it in the process. (edit:Google "ARP spoofing") I'm honestly not sure how you'd go about preventing this, if I'm on a LAN I ...

I had the same problem. I have installed Ubuntu without an enternet connection and I can't get this driver installed. I just reinstall Ubuntu from the CD with a wired connection. I'm sure that this is a new bug with this new Ubuntu version.

Do I need Drivers? To run hardware you need drivers. If yes where do I get drivers from? The installer will pick all the drivers it can pick that your hardware supplies. So as long as the hardware is supported you yourself do not need to worry about drivers. Contrary to Windows Linux uses generic drivers; so we have 1 driver to rule lots of ...

Thanks for responding. My apologies for returning to my question months afterwards... The problem was caused by an option for 3rd party software / updates option, after the regional/time setup stage... If the 3rd party thing is unchecked, the installation is successful, without any wireless complaints.
