We would need to know your set up and a bit more information on the 
errors.  Are you dual booting?  Which Ubuntu?  Type of network card?

Assuming you are dual booting then a windows program in a windows OS 
would not affect the ubuntu partition because windows cannot read the 
file system.  This being the case then your network card /should/ be 
fine.  Again, just an assumption without more info.
