It is common for the ears to fall once the pups start teething, around four months old. If the ears were up previously, they should come up again, around six months of age, so no need to panic on the ears. It is possible that the cone damaged the ears and caused them to fall down, but because of her age and the teething phase she is going through, I would not be overly worried.
You can post pictures of your pup? We might be able to give an educated opinion if she is pure-bred or not.
To help with the ears, give her knuckle bones to chew on - it will help strengthen the jaw and neck muscles, and helps with the ears.
What are you feeding her? What vitamins are you giving? Some supplements can do more harm than good at this age - for example, DON'T give her extra calcium! Many people do to help with the ears, but calcium will have nothing to do with the ears. Instead, they may cause the bones to grow too fast and cause developmental problems.
