I have a Toshiba Satellite l655-s5105 and have Ubuntu 12.04.

I have been working with it for almost a year now and it worked perfectly. I believe I updated some packages and the next time I turned on my computer it did not allow me to connect to my wireless nor the wired connection. I tried to reinstall the driver but it did not work.

Please help.

What wireless troubleshooting steps have you performed, to better define the issue? – david6 Jul 27 '12 at 2:35

Go to terminal and type

 sudo apt-get remove name_of_problem_software_install

Then remove whatever software you think caused it. If that doesn't work you can try plugging it in to the firewire and searching for drivers.

Also, see this thread for what looks to be a similar issue on a toshiba laptop
