comment how to resolve unmet dependencies and file collisions due mixing diferent repositories?
Thank you, I fixed it. This started when I tried a specific type of php installation for phpbrew that gave me some dependencies problem when I executed apt-get build-dep php5.I tried to resolve them following other answers and made the problem worse. This along with possible existing problems on my system(mixed repos)led to the mess. I followed you advice and used quantal. In etc/apt/ I noticed sources.list.distUpgrade. so I did sudo cp sources.list.distUpgrade sources.list then sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update and then sudo apt-get upgrade and everything is working fine now.

Thanks, I am not sure how repositories were mixed. Also, every time I do sudo apt-get -f install i get The following extra packages will be installed: linux-image-extra-3.8.0-35-generic. Lastly, what do you mean by give up the installation? Start over?

It seems that the problem is only with this particular network. I am not the only one. Mac and Windows connect fine but ubuntu, regardless of hardware, have problems connecting to this particular network. What could be the issue so at least I can talk to the network guys?
