  • Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3 terminal command. – Pilot6 Aug 17 '17 at 7:00
  • Apparently you're connecting to a iPhone hotspot (tethering). Have you tested it in another normal WiFi networks from a normal router? – user692175 Aug 17 '17 at 10:52
  • I have tried with other wifi networks also – Aswathi M Aug 24 '17 at 10:30
