    I understand from your post in 'ask ubuntu' that your issue may not be a driver issue since you are able to connect the machine with the hotspot provided by the mobile phone. Hence why don't you provide the same factor settings to your home wifi just like your phone hotspot?

    See Wireless-info in my signature and follow the instructions there to run and report the details given by that script which you can download, make executable, and then run in terminal.
    The information that the script provides may help our network experts come up with more help.

    Why is it so complicated ? In windows I can easily connect to my WiFi without changing any factor settings. Besides what factor settings you are talking about ? Can you give an example ?

    I don't understand how would I have to make executable from a text file ? I am new to ubuntu not familiar with it. Can you give a step by step procedure.

    Hi
    The 'same factor settings' in this issue shall be making your wifi visible and 'disabling the mac filter.

    Select the text file and right-click it. In the pop-up menu, select 'properties'. A 'properties' window will open, select 'permission' and tick the checkbox meant for 'Execute'.

    But I want my WiFi to be hidden and protected with mac filter so that my neighbours don't missuse it. Would I have to do these steps everytime I have to connect my WiFi to ubuntu ?

    I saved the file as .txt and marked it as Allow executing file as program in the properties as suggested by @drpjkurian. Now how to run it ? I tried running it from the terminal but got command not found
