I have 512 MB of ram(ubuntu says 465.3MB) and 65.7 GB of harddrive available

After updating from 8.04 to 9.10, my mouse will move, but slowly. When plugging in my flash drive, it will take a long while before it recognizes it, and then when trying to transfer files from it, it'll take 6 hours to transfer 1 GB - it wasn't that long before (admittedly it would take some time, but not six hours)

I did try changing the settings for my mouse under 'mouse preferences' but even with acceleration set to the fastest its still too slow

I know that the system isn't slowing everything down, because if I use the keyboard it moves right along like it should. opening programs, just fine.

Also as a side note, could someone help me with my internet issue? even though my internet is plugged in It says there is no network connection, but if i plug that same cord into my laptop, the internet works just fine.
