Maybe ubuntu doesnt has the drivers of your card... so try to search for your card drivers for ubuntu...
You can get info from your card by typing dxdiag in Windows run command...

Have you tried pressing the button that turns the wireless card on and off. Can be on the keyboard or a switch/button on the side somewhere.

the version of my laptop is dell inc model:inspiron 3537

Ok this will solve ur problem

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential


tar xvf compat

cd compat-wireless-3.6.6-1-snpc

sudo su

./scripts/driver-select ath9k
