  Wifi not working acer laptop

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I installed Ubuntu 14.04 in my acer Aspire E 14 E5-473-31R5 laptop. I
  did not find proper solution to connect it with WiFi. If I go to
  "Additional Drivers" tab under "System Settings > Software & Update" I
  can't see any drive for WiFi. There is a option of my laptop for
  toggling WiFi by pressing (Fn + F3), tested by pressing this but did
  not work.
