I downloaded Ubuntu 14.04 today, and I went about installing it on my personal laptop. During the installation it asks you if you would like to apply updates while the installation is being processed; however, my laptop was already having issues connecting at the time, so I could not select that option. (I do not know if that has any effect on the issue I am currently experiencing.)
Ubuntu just finished installing, and it automatically has no connections. I plugged in an ethernet cord to the laptop, and I still couldn't get any sort of connections.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Note: Before installing Ubuntu, I was running Windows 7. I was, also, connected to WiFi earlier today, before installing Ubuntu.
