This is a question that has occasionally been asked in the past. I have tried the various fixes proposed by others but haven't had any success. I can connect to wifi when not booting Ubuntu. Here's some background information:
- I have tried various fixes from similar threads such as resetting the network manager and unblocking wifi.
- As alluded to, this is a dual install. I can connect to wifi without issue when booting Windows.
- The Software & Updates section of Settings does not display any needed proprietary drivers.
- The ASUS motherboard I have comes with a USB for drivers. It contains a readme for Linux users saying to upgrade to the latest Linux Kernel (though this readme was probably written years ago). Could the branch of Linux Kernels for 14.04 be out-of-date for this motherboard?
Let me know if there's any command lines I should run and post results for. I haven't used Ubuntu or Linux before so I don't know what diagnostics could be useful.
The output for
sudo lshw -C network is
