I am having many issues to get Ubuntu 16.04.01 LTS to recognize my wireless card (Intel 3160). I have reinstalled the OS many times, but I have the same problem all the time. A couple of days ago, the first time I installed, it worked, but it just stopped working yesterday, so I decided to reinstall the whole system (repartition included). I have tried many solutions from the forums, but I don't know what else I can do. I love this OS, but I am newby. It would be a pity returning to Windows (I am very tired of Windows, but at least I had wireless connectivity). I have Ethernet connection. Please, keep in mind that I am totally newby, so I don't know how to install a package after downloading it. Thank you in advance for your valuable help!
Edit: Thank you for your quick answer, Pilot6! This is what I am getting:
