[ubuntu] installing Network manager with no internet

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – ok i am dualbooting so can get files etc to my laptop I do not have a lan cable. I want to get internet acess back on ubuntu but i cant install network manager. I uninstalled it as it was conflicting with another program at the time. iv tried command line to get wireless working but it wont either. (this does seem the more logical step since once i have it, i can use synaptic to instlal network manager, even though wudnt be needed then) I have tried installing network manager various versions by compiling tars, but im missing around 10 dependancies. Each of these has 50 dependancies also, s (Hardware)
