First off, 15.04 hasn't been supported since February of this year so you won't be able to get any software or security updates. If you can, try using the current 16.04 or going to 14.04 as both will be supported for several years.

You would need to post more details on what exactly you do configure wireless and what fails.

Hello and welcome to the forum

Please read the information here. The more details we have, the better we can help you.

I agree with yancek's suggestion to install either Ubuntu 14.04 or 16.04, if at all possible, as these are currently supported. In terms of getting your printer working, did you mean the HL L2340dw? If so and you have not yet installed the drivers, perhaps the instructions here will be of help.

Regards...
