The driver tool won't work if it can't connect to the internet, so we should fix that first, do you have a wireless network available? That wireless care should work out of the box, then after you connect to it, run the driver tool. Please update your question with the results after you've tried that. –  Jorge Castro Jan 16 '13 at 15:42

The forums would probably be a better place to discuss this type of problem. Your lspci results show that everything if recognised (with linux most of the drivers are included in the install). You can add both the Nvidia driver and probably the network driver by launching 'Additional Drivers' in settings.

Re-reading your post I notice your ethernet is not working. Best to look for a solution to this first as installing/updating will be problematic without this working. I suggest searching the web and or ubuntu forums Ubuntu Networking Forum for information about your nic. From the lspci your nic is 02:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications Inc. Device [1969:e091] (rev 13) Try here Solved in this post

But there is nothing listed under Additional Drivers.... That is my problem. I have no idea what to do about that. I open Additional Drivers in settings and there is nothing there. –  madmike59 Dec 7 '12 at 10:09
    
@madmike59 - You have to fix your network issue, first. Additional Drivers will never show anything if it can't connect to the Internet to find the additional drivers (or to even know that there are any additional drivers to be had). –  Shauna Jan 16 '13 at 15:43
