I did a clean upgrade to 16.04 and even though I have a wired connection, I have the wireless icon in the top right trying to connect but failing.

I've found similar posts but nothing seems to work. Please help!

output of lspci -k | grep -EA2 'Eth|Net':

  • You have two Ethernet adapters. Which one are you trying to use? – Pilot6 Jul 8 '16 at 12:40
