    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!

    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:

    I believe this means they need the lpphy firmware.
