Hi Harryke!

If You have installed it INSTEAD of Windows, try to check out the settings under BIOS for the WiFi and the Bluetooth! For me, it turned out at some point that if the Bluetooth is switched on - either on Windows, before shutting down the machine, or under BIOS - then under Linux the WiFi is not to use (doesn't let it to be used). And as far as I understood it, from Linux You don't have access to the BIOS-settings. Or it depends from the adapter you are using. 

Good luck,
