    D-Link wireless connection

    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).

    I have the EXACT same issue. I raised a separate post before realising you had the same issue.

    Someone must have fixed this by now. Anyone help!

    I've installed 9.04 and got rid of 9.10.

    Everything works fine now.

    Yes, everything works for me too with 9.04, as it did before...
    But why shouldn't I be able to use 9.10? It gets on my nerves.
    Also, why does nobody answer???

    Maybe cos 9.10 has soo many issues people are too busy fixing them and obscure problems like the one we had is not yet serious enough to merit effort.

    I have 8.04 on my 5year old desk top and it JUST WORKS!
    I put 9.04 on my laptop and thats also cool, but 9.10...flippin 'eck!!!
