You will have to install fresh- This will help-… – Nirmik May 16 '12 at 11:35

If it where my desktop/laptop I would ... Backup user data to external storage and to a fresh install.

If your wifi adapter isn't working with a fresh install, then I'd do a 'lspci' and find the wifi adapter model and google that + ubuntu 12.04. It's almost certain that someone has already solved the issue for you. But I can't tell because you didn't post a lot of details other than a failed upgrade.
