Thanks! Can you make some specific comments on my USB and internal adaptors? My laptop is Lenovo T400 with its own default internal adaptor, and my USB adaptor is "SUS PCE-N13 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 150/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate 64-bit/128-bit WEP, TKIP, and AES WI-Fi alliance WPA, WPA2"

Thanks! Restarting OS isn't tricking Ubuntu to think it works. It does work until I move my laptop.

comment Internal wireless adaptor becomes not working after I move the laptop
Thanks, @DavidSchwartz! (1) "Why did you open your laptop a few months ago?" I have had the problem for more than a year. (2) I can't be sure if they are fully engaged. But why restarting OS will temporarily solve the problem? (3) Will a USB wireless adaptor (mentioned in my post) solve the problem?
