comment Wired Ethernet issue on Ubuntu 14.04: Link detected, but no internet
It will only work while the system is running, that's what temporarily meant, but if it worked, then the problem is with the module/microcode etc.. it will not persist beyond reboot. You'd have to blacklist the module or something. try this

comment Not able to discover all avilable wifi networks in ubuntu 14.04 & weak signal strength
Are you getting any error messages? I've often found with unstable/poor wifi that its likely a driver issue, as booting into another OS on the same hardware the wifi would work fine, check /var/log/messages & dmesg for wifi issues.

wlan0 = wireless NIC, eth0 = wired NIC.. so yes, you have two Network Interface Cards. dmidecode doesn't do networking, it does BIOS data.
