    Hi,
    please open a terminal with CTRL+ALT+T and show the outputs of:
    Code:
    uname -a
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    lsusb
    lsmod
    iwconfig
    rfkill list
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    Does LAN work? I strongly recommend installing Ubuntu 12.04.3 Long Term Support (until April 2017), which ships a newer Kernel than 12.10 (support until April 2014 only).

    My other computer is installed with 12.10 and I am planning to upgrade both in April 2014.
    Thanks.

    Linux driver downloaded directly from realtek's site (RTL8188CE) Solved the problem. Thank you!

    Recently when updating software this driver was dumped or disabled leaving the laptop wireless, again. I reinstalled it using the same instructions with success.
