I have read many posts and the answers provided don't seem to help me. I have ran many commands and pasted them below so hopefully will cover the basic questions about my system and what i am experiencing. As you can see, I have no wired connection anymore. I had to move my PC so can;t connect physically anymore. Your assistance will be most appreciated.


Hey WILF thanks very much for your assistance and apologies for the delay. I decided to remove all the old stuff, as i think it will be irrelevant now. I have rerun the script but lspci gives me nothing to do with network. See below for results (i removed the details and only provided the headers):

salvador@salvador:~$ sudo lshw -c network [first it shows] CPUID [but quickly turns to ] PCI (sysfs)
[but after a few seconds, it turns to nothing]

--------------------------

salvador@salvador:~$ sudo lshw -class network
[same as above]

Is this a USB wifi card, or one in the computer? –  Wilf Jan 18 at 15:35
    
There are a few wireless devices that are attached to an internal USB bus. Please edit your question to add the result of: lsusb –  chili555 Jan 18 at 16:07

As you have no network connection, you will have to install the packages manually. You wil have to download the .deb files, and install with dpkg.

From the following links you can download the .deb files on another machine, and then copy the files other to the one without any internet - select the 32bit links:

To install the packages, right-click on one and select Copy

Open a terminal, and right click and select 'Paste Filenames'. If you don't have 'Paste Filenames', see the small print below. You should get something like:

'/home/wmobbs/Downloads Folder/lshw_02.15-2_i386.deb'

If you paste ordinarily You will likely get something like this:

file:///home/wmobbs/Downloads%20Folder/lshw_02.15-2_i386.deb 

remove the file://, swap the %20s for spaces s, and add quotes:

'/home/wmobbs/Downloads Folder/lshw_02.15-2_i386.deb'

Now add sudo dpkg -i at the beginning, and press Enter.

sudo dpkg -i '/home/wmobbs/Downloads Folder/lshw_02.15-2_i386.deb'

That should install the package, then repeat that for the other required packages.

If you need any dependencies (other packages required for that package to work), you can get them from here. Look for ones for 12.04 or precise, as I think that is what you are using from your given info. You can install those as above.

First of all thanks very much for the replies. it is really appreciated. I had a go at installing all four packages. They all worked ok, except rfkill, which gave me the following message: -ureadahead will be reprofiled on next reboot So, i rebooted and then first thing i did was run the rfkill list all script. But I got nothing, so tried to install again, and got the same message at the end. This time i didn;t reboot and just ran the script, only to again get nothing. See more comments below. For some reason I can't add a proper reply :s –  Freddy Jan 20 at 15:41

I ran previous scripts for lshw and ethtool and got some answers - see below. Hopefully they will assist with working out what is missing on my pc. -------------------------- salvador@salvador:~$ sudo lshw -c network [first it shows] CPUID [but quickly turns to ] PCI (sysfs) [but after a few seconds, it turns to nothing] -------------------------- salvador@salvador:~$ sudo lshw -class network [same as above] –  Freddy Jan 20 at 15:42
