I have Ubuntu desktop 16.04 and I cannot connect to the Internet via my wireless card on my motherboard. But I can connect to the Internet on my Windows 10 partition. I am not that savvy with Linux but why will my Ubuntu not connect to the Internet. I have an ultrabook so there is no Ethernet port.


Above is my network diagnostic page when run in Ubuntu.

    What do you call "connecting to the internet"? is it about a wireless connection? – Pilot6 Aug 16 '17 at 9:55

    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Could you please run the network diagnostics and edit your question to include a link to the result? I know it may seem a bit overwhelming for a novice but your info so far is a bit vague and the diagnostics will likely cover all options that may cause your issue. Thanks. – David Foerster Aug 16 '17 at 10:52
  • @Pilot6: Probably since the computer has no Ethernet adapter (according to the question). – David Foerster Aug 16 '17 at 10:52
