I am very new to Ubuntu. I am pretty good with Windows.

I have a HP s7517 with Windows XP that dual boots with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I checked for updates and it said there were several, so I started the update process. It displayed some error about GRUB (what ever that is) but otherwise completed ok.

When I re-booted, neither the Intel LAN adapter built into the mother board and the RLT8192C USB WiFi adapter show in the network manager. (both work in Windows XP)

sudo lshw -c network displays nothing at all.

What do I do now?
