Until yesterday, I had Ubuntu 9.04 x86-64 dual-booting with Windows XP on my Pc.
Today, I decided to try 9.10 (always the 64bit version), and to perform a fresh install instead of upgrading from 9.04.
I thought that, since Koala gave no problems at all under every aspect, it would have been a walk in the park. I instead found out that I kinda took a step back instead of a step forward.
The thing that amazed me the most was the fact that I was able to use my PC immediatley after the installation, without hardware issues (which was the thing that scared me the most of 64bit systems).
I connect to the Internet with a D-Link USB wireless adapter and a D-Link wireless router. With 9.04, everything worked perfectly withou me having to do anyhing: I turned on the PC, let the system recognize the various wireless networks (I always detect 3, of which 1 of them belongs to me), entered the WEP key, and started to use the Net.
With 9.10, things seemed to be just the same. Ubuntu recognizes I have a wireless capability, and scans for networks. I enter the key for mine, and everything seems fine.
I say seems, 'cause nothing really happens. The system keeps telling me the connection works, but I can't use Firefox or Synaptic (and those are just examples).
Under Win XP, everything keeps working just fine (I'm writing this post from XP, since my Ubuntu can't access Internet).
