I have built a PC recently, and have installed Ubuntu 16.04 alongside Windows 7 on it, but I'm having problems getting Ubuntu to connect to the internet. (Wireless)

The "available" networks show, but when I try to connect to one, it connect after a minute or so, and then after one or two seconds, it just disconnects again. On Windows 7, the internet works just fine.

I have set the IPv6 method to "ignore" and the password stored itself, (Those were the most common solutions I found online) and the problem persists.

What do I do?

If it helps, here are my specs: 8-core 4.0GHz AMD CPU 8GB RAM AMD R9 Fury GPU 4TB Hybrid Drive (1.8TB used for Ubuntu Partition)

Using "lspci -knn | grep Net -A3" return this: http://prnt.sc/eipmav (Sorry for the camera-on-screen thing, my Ubuntu currently refuses to accept all but 2 of my PC's USB ports, both are taken up by my keyboard and mouse, so I had no way of getting copying and pasting the text.)

  • What do you call "internet"? How do you try to connect? Is it some wireless adapter, etc? – Pilot6 Mar 11 '17 at 17:06
  • Oh right, it's a wireless network adapter I have installed in the PC. – Cobradabest Mar 11 '17 at 17:18
  • Is it a PCI adapter? – Pilot6 Mar 11 '17 at 17:19
  • Well, PCI-express, yeah, – Cobradabest Mar 11 '17 at 17:28
  • Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3 terminal command. – Pilot6 Mar 11 '17 at 17:28
