    I have also lost wifi since upgrading to 9.10. Computer is a Dell Inspiron 8200 with a mini-PCI Broadcom 4303 (using b43legacy driver). Otherwise results are the same as original poster's.

    From the info in /var/log/messages, card is being turned off due to RF kill button (except the laptop has no RF kill button). Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the proprietary driver, but that didn't do anything. Is there any way to completely bypass the rfkill system so that the driver won't be expecting some non-existent button push?
    same issue here, this time with a linksys pci wireless-b card. it has a bcm4303, mod=b43legacy.

    Code:
    $ rfkill list
    1: phy1: Wireless LAN
    	Soft blocked: no
    	Hard blocked: yes
    last i checked, deskops didn't have wifi kill buttons.
    any ideas?

    Let's take a look at:
    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    rfkill list
    dmesg | grep b43
    Thanks.

    Will you please open System > Administration > Synaptic and see if you have installed linux-backports-modules-karmic-generic? It evidently has a newer b43legacy and ssb in it.
