I just installed ubuntu 8.10, and after having some trouble getting the wireless working got it to detect networks and connect using sudo aptitude install linux-backports-modules-intrepid-generic and restarting. However, after a few hours, my wireless suddenly stopped working and the LED indicator of whether its on or not remains off no matter where the switch is. The wireless card is not detected by lspci. Even if I boot into windows I have no wireless. Is this caused by ubuntu 8.10 even though my wireless in windows doesnt work either or is it possible that my wireless card just suddenly quit and its pure coincidence?

By the way, running a Toshiba Satellite lap top with an Atheros wireless card.
