I finished my fresh install of 12.04 LTS x64 this morning following insurmountable problems with 12.10. Everything went smoothly until I logged in. It was at this point I noticed I had no mouse control. I went to browse Firefox via the terminal and discovered there was no connection. In fact, my router isn't even recognizing that the PC is plugged into the network. Google yielded no results, thus I turn to your combined expertise. I am extremely new to Ubuntu and apologize in advance for the lack of knowledge. I'm sure it will show. Specs below:
AsRock z75 Pro 3 w/ Intel I5 3.1GHz quad Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition WD3200KS (only drive on system)
I will post any requested information as soon as possible.
