Ubuntu: WiFi not an option in network settings after upgrade to 17.04 (Gnome)



Question:

So I recently upgraded from 16.10 to 17.04 on my laptop (ASUS x551ca). I had some issues and had to go through the recovery menu, but eventually got everything up. While at that I had to do some fancy stuff with wpa_supplicant in order to get my network interface up and working. Unfortunately, I have yet to get the settings app to see my wifi card. I do have wifi access to the internet (I'm using it right now) but I can't seem to change which router I'm connected to once I'm logged in.

When I go into the settings application, and click on networking, it only shows wired and vpn, but no wireless card.

Anybody have any idea what the little piece of gnome/ubuntu is called that I might uninstall and reinstall to see about getting this to work?

output of cat /etc/network/interfaces:

# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)  auto lo  iface lo inet loopback  auto wlp2s0  iface wlp2s0 inet dhcp  

also see this link for a copy of my output from the wireless-info.sh script.

and this is what I get in the Network tab of the Settings applkcation: the window when I click Network in Settings

thanks

pam
