    6. got this list of errors and pasting them here:
    Ah, that dpkg -i * command was meant for only the linux-headers-generic and build-essential packages (and others downloaded as their dependencies). Those two packages (+ other dependency packages) had to be copied to another (new & empty) folder where all of the above steps had to be performed. All these steps are substitute to only the first command in step 4 of the linked post. All the other steps in that posts, and other commands in step 4 have to be same as mentioned there.

    For the driver installation, you will have to perform same steps as in the linked post. Only difference is that you don't have a cable connection either, so skip step 1, then replace only the first command in step 4 with the instructions in my previous post here.

    Unrelated update: I plugged in a usb wireless device, and It was having the same exact connect/disconnect issue as the hardline and the wireless card.

    Ok. I am sorry, for still not getting this, but I am confused. The very first command Code: apt-get install --print-uris build-essential linux-headers-generic did not show the files I needed, it simply said they could not be found. I did some research and I downloaded: build-essential_11.5ubuntu2amd64.deb & linux-headers-generic_3.8.0.26.44_amd64.deb I then put them in a new folder on my desktop and tried Code: sudo dpkg -i * The files failed to install, citing a need for dependencies. I downloaded: dpkg_1.16.1.2ubuntu7.1.tar.bz2 & g++4.7-multilib_4.7.3-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb Finally, I put all four packages into the desktop folder and again tried code: sudo dpkg -i * and It was telling me I was missing other dependencies!!!

    Perhaps I have to do a separate install step for these packages?

    So I am quite confused. I am posting a text of my last terminal command:

    jak@jak:~$ cd /home/jak/Desktop/fold
    jak@jak:~/Desktop/fold$ sudo dpkg -i *

    Please post the output of that command instead.

    Also these outputs -
    Code:
    dpkg --get-selections | egrep 'linux-headers|build-essential'

    Having trouble with usb at the moment, so I am typing this out; I will look out for errors.

    The results for the first command have changed, must be something I did after my install attempts.

    using jak@jak:~$ I ran the following:

    Code:
    apt-get install --print-uris build-essential linux-headers-generic
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    reading state information... Done
    build-essential is already the newest version.
    linux-headers-generic is already the newest version.
    You might want to run 'apt-get' -f install' to correct these:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    build-essential : Depends: g++ (>= 4:4.4.3) but it is not installable
    Depends: dpkg-dev (>= 1.13.5) but it is not installable
    g++-4.7-multilib : Depends: g++-4.7 (= 4.7.3-1ubuntu1) but is not installable
    Depends: gcc-4.7-multilib (= 4.7.3-1ubuntu1) but is not installable
    Depends: lib32stdc++6-4.7-dev (= 4.7.3-1ubuntu1) but is not installable
    Depends: libx32stdc++6-4.7-dev (= 4.7.3-1ubuntu1) but is not installable
    linux-headers-generic : Depends: linux-headers-3.8.0.26-generic but it is not installable
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


    Then, I did:

    Code:
    dpkg --get-selections | egrep 'linux-headers|build-essential'
    build-essential install
    linux-headers-3.8.0-19 install
    linux-headers-3.8.0-19-generic install
    linux-headers-generic install
    linux-headers-server install


    *This post keeps removing the extra spaces I typed in, but all of the text is there.

    I decided to take drastic action and overwrite both my SSD and HDD with a slow write. After doing this, I did yet another install of 13.04. This time I have no bright graphical background. I just have the black screen with login. I think the fact that it installed this way, this time and not before, meant that there were old drivers from past installs on the system I was working with. I will start a new thread, since this is a more basic offline install, and won't involve any software that was not included with 13.04. Thank you all who helped me with this question!!! I learned a lot, even if I couldn't get my desktop up and running. I will have a new post up today, If you have any time to look at it. Thanks again, really.
