Ubuntu 12.04 LTS - wifi issue
 
Hi,

I have recently installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS in my laptop. Everything looks cool, i am pretty much happy with it. But i have a minor regarding wifi and wired connection.

Ubuntu is unable to find the wireless or wired connections which are available. I have searched and found to try with the below command,

Code:

rfkill list all
Output of this command doesn't give me any detail about wifi, it states about the bluetooth device only. Can anyone please help me here?
