    Open your terminal and do this

    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock wifi
    and try again .
    Dont miss anything even it is small. one small pin is enough to bring down a man.

    You may also want to check whether it is hard blocked or not (switched off physically). Code in terminal:
    Code:
    rfkill list all

    for a new issue you must create a new Thread to get more help . Your home you have created as a separate one or its with single Ubuntu partition ?.
