    Won't connect to internet

    I just did a fresh install of ubuntu 12.10, and when I go to connect to the internet, the applet say "disconnected" in faded letters and won't give me the option to connect to a network. I also cannot connect via a physical line, with the same issue. How do I resolve this problem?
    I have an old HP mini, if you were wondering.

    What are the results of
    Code:
    sudo lshw -c network
    (The above won't modify your system; it will only grab some info about your networking card and drivers.)
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!

    @Arendyl,
    Try this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge firmware-b43-installer
    sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    @Sowndefex,
    does the output of
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    also return a line
    Code:
    product: BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY
    for you?

    Unless it has been removed between 12.04 and 12.10, it should be in the multiverse repository. Do you have multiverse enabled?

    I have no idea. How do I check that?

    Re: Won't connect to internet

    In Software Center, Edit>Software Sources.
    There should be an option like "Software restricted by copyright or legal issues (multiverse)". Make sure it's checked.

    Then,
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!
