Hi Lauren

I have seen this issue before when the file /etc/networks/interfaces is mis-configured. Check this file it should only have the following at a basic level:

auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback

From the command line,

Please tried the following command and let us know the output:

ifconfig -a
lspci -vvnn | grep Wireless

Can you help with this problem?
