    Iampanda; Apologize if I sounded condescending - did not understand the situation.
    Perhaps the better solution at this time with all these problems is to start fresh with another (re)install.

    so I'm very confused now - I kind of assumed earlier that you were only able to get to a console (terminal) and prepared a long reply about getting networking running from that - but then in post #23 you talk about the 'Wired Connection 1' - which is obviously a feature of the GUI ?!@*

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Fresh install problems

    At the login screen it has the network icon on the top taskbar but I cannot get to any programs or anything and the only thing I can click on with the network icon is to disable connection from the drop down menu. I tried right-clicking Wired Connection 1 and Connection Properties (or whatever it was at the very bottom) but it just closes the drop-menu out and does nothing. I can log in but it just goes to a blank desktop with no icons. I can easily get to the terminal. The login screen looks perfect I just can't change anything from the drop-menu with the networking. Sorry for the confusion, I'm sick and my brain hurts. :/

    It is a puzzle'n thing...
    As your system was working prior to the updates. Let's try an older kernel and see if you boot up and all is good with that kernel.

    At the grub menu select on that menu "other versions" and boot up an older kernel - I have not seen 12.10 so my directions may be a bit hazy- This way we can at least eliminate hardware problems if it boots up.

    try'n to help
