[    0.498890] [Firmware Bug]: ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored

Hence, as per http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/latitude-6430u-ultrabook an update is available for your BIOS (A06). If you update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate , does it change anything? If it doesn't, could you please both specify what happened, and just provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Thank you for your understanding.

Bug description:
  This is just an oddity I can't figure out. lspci:

  Which clearly show the intel Centrino wireless device and the Intel Gigabit Ethernet device. and that's it.
  lsusb shows this:

  And none of those appear to be networking devices.

  However, when I open nm-applet I see three networking devices:
  Wired Network (Intel 82579LM Gigabit)
  Wired Network (Novatel Wireless HSPA)
  Wireless Networks (and a list of access points)
