problems with wlan0 not working

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am running kubuntu 12.04, and lost my ability to pick from available wireless networks. I checked the rfk block listing. it is not hard or soft blocked. The kernel has the correct modules loaded, and are active. I'm just confused on where the wireles network manager disappeared to. I don't have the applet that brings up my networks in range. If i run the iwconfig scan command (i think thats it) I get " no scan results)

Is there a way to "roll back" a few days or something? Or how do i get the wireless network manager back?

I know somewhat recently kernel device names changed. What is the result of "ip link" in a terminal? This should list all interfaces.

For example, on my main rig, eth0 became enp0s3.

That was part of systemd updates. Ubuntu still uses udev.
