About a week ago, I upgraded to 16.04 and ever since then, my computer doesn't seem to connect to wifi. I have Windows 10 on another partition, and that connects just fine. LAN connects fine too.

Here's what shows under Network - No Wifi option! When I do nm-tool, it says

No command 'nm-tool' found, did you mean:
 Command 'dm-tool' from package 'lightdm' (main)
nm-tool: command not found

I try tethering from my phone, that doesn't work too. FYI, it worked like a charm before the update!

Please, can you help me?!

Try nmtui

nmtui — Text User Interface for controlling NetworkManager

nmtui [edit | connect | hostname] [...] nmtui-edit [connection-id | connection-name] nmtui-connect [connection-name | connection-uuid | device-name | Wi-Fi-SSID] nmtui-hostname

  • Ok, what am I supposed to be looking at in this? Anything in particular? The options it gives me are pretty much the same as the regular UI (under System Settings) – Anonymous Person May 9 '16 at 12:09
  • Any help, anyone? – Anonymous Person May 9 '16 at 18:19
