oh macbook, don't know. xinput, xset, for touchpad might want to look in setup dependiing on what desktop you're using.
wifi / nic cable usb port dongles. check in to them
usb network adapter

Does the right-click work with a mouse? If it does, this verifies that this is a touchpad issue and not something larger.

What is the wireless chipset in that machine? The command lspci (list pci devices) issued in a terminal should provide that information.

As regards USB wireless dongles, be very careful in purchasing one to make sure that the manufacturer provides adequate Linux support. Linux support by the makers of USB dongles tends to be spotty at best.

Please open a terminal and enter
Code:
synclient
so we can get some troubleshooting info.
Put the output here on the forums, in CODE tags just like I did.

as to network card drivers...

Not knowing what network card you have makes it impossible to give specific instructions as each brand that
does not automatically install will require specific actions. The lspci command will give you an understanding
of the network card you have. Once you have the brand name, connect the ethernet cable, check that you have
internet, and do a net search such as 'installing drivers for a (brand name) network card in (linux distro)'.
Quite often you will find instructions to install the drivers needed for your specific card.
I had to install wireless drivers for my broadcom network card (actually 3 times, bodhi being my most recent).
While you did not specify this, I am assuming you are needing wireless drivers, too, based on not wanting a cable hookup to be necessary.
While this is general info, it may be enough to get a start to solve this issue. Follow instructions carefully.

Hope this helps, Craig
