    Upgrade failed and Wifi stopped working

    Recent upgrades (the last two) have both failed on my Acer Aspire One netbook and the Wifi is not working nor is it shown as an option in the Network Settings. Wired connection still works and all software I usually use (Thunderbird, Firefox and Libre Office) seem to be Ok. Any ideas how I might get Wifi running again? Following a recent post about problems with IPV6 I have run some sudo command lines which claimed to have disabled IPV6 but no luck re Wifi. NB I am a novice Ubuntu user.
