How to roll-back upgraded version of the kernel to the old version in Ubuntu?


I got a pop-up message that my version of the kernel was going out of support and I installed the new version from the provided link but ever since then my internet connection is not working. How do I roll-back my current kernel version to the previous one? I am running Ubuntu Precise 12.04 and the new version of the kernel 3.13.032-generic.

Remove offending Kernel images and headers.

Then when done.

Code:
sudo update-grub
Your old kernel is still installed. All you need do is remove the one that does not work out for you.

Code:
sudo dpkg --list | grep linux-image
and

Code:
dpkg --list | grep linux-headers
are your friends in doing this. Then go into synaptic. Copy and paste readout into synaptic search and uninstall.

Hold the shift key when first booting up to find your old kernel to boot into before uninstalling the new kernel.
Because you will need to running on the old kernel to uninstall the new one.
