Internet access

I have an older ThinkPad, used to access the net with Windows then later with Ubuntu Linux no problems, Now out of the blue I cannot connect to the net beit wireless or through wired connection. It shows no network available, I have checked all the settings and they seem okya as far as I can tell. Any idea what may have gone wrong? thanks
