sudo NetworkManager says it is already running pid 1100
route -n just shows the headings but no info under them.

Except for the suggestion to autoremove blt, which I did, these produced
all zeros except 106 not upgraded.
OK. I have a wired connection back. Looking a the Software Updater I
noticed that there was an Other section at the bottom of the list that
contained about 10 items. I deselected them all and let the install
proceed. It finished up and I rebooted and now my network is back. I
plan on installing each of those 10 packages one at a time to see where
the problem was.

That happens to be were I got it. I have had no problems with it on my
desktop running 12.04.
