sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
JeremyB Unfortunately, no luck. The headers were actually installed, but I reinstalled them sudo aptitude reinstall linux-headers-generic and rebooted. The network setting panel indicates Ethernet and Proxy only. I added a WiFi connection to the network connections, hoping that this may help. I did notice that there is no MAC address.

JeremyB, Thanks again for all your efforts. As you can see in this post: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=274370&p=1503002#p1503002 I finally managed to sort out everything.
