Hi guys, I recently decided to install ubuntu on my newly purchased laptop.. However, I can't seem to get my wireless card to work.. It will appears on the network manager but will not be able to detect any wireless network.. Here's hoping someone here can help me out.

1) Machine Brand

Lenovo G485
2) Running lspci

8) Running uname -mr

I am unable to run the restart network command as doing so will cause Unity to crash and me being able to do anything other than reboot..

Hope someone here can help me out soon.. A laptop without wireless is a pain in the butt.
