Problem: Can’t connect to wireless network using Ubuntu together with Dell Vostro notebook or wireless light is not burning or any other wireless connectivity problems with the Dell Vostro running Ubuntu.


The network service needs to be restarted once all the other services are started.

Add the line to the file /etc/rc.local

/etc/init.d/networking restart 

And reboot the PC and now it should work.
