If you're short of time, use a wired connection and get your work done. You shouldn't do upgrades on a production machine like this without some kind of backup. Laptops usually have a switch which allows you to turn off all wireless radios. Check to see if you accidentally turned yours off. –  Noufal Ibrahim Nov 11 '11 at 18:23
