I'm using fresh install of gnome-ubuntu 16.04 and after installing the NVIDIA binary driver - version 361.42 from nvidia-361 from the additional drivers my wi-fi adapter stopped working. If i switch to the other driver -- Nouveau display driver from xserver-xorg-video-nouveau(open source), the adapter works fine.

Although the wi-fi adapter works fine with the other driver, it makes using my Wacom tablet unusable as it slows down to the point of being unusable.

These are my options as I see them: http://imgur.com/5KCzVsq

The wired connection works perfectly though.

Running 'lsusb' gives me:

And running 'rfkill list all' only gives:

0: hci0: Bluetooth
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no

Thanks for the patience.
