    Wireless on Dell Vostro 1710 problem

    Hello all,
    I could really use any help you guyz can give me regarding the following problem.

    I have recently installed 9.10 un my laptop (dell vostro 1710) and everything worked just fine until an update 3 days ago, when my wireless drivers (detected, installed ok and working) went crazy.

    Long story short - no errors, no messages, just that my ubuntu now detect wireless networks in the area totally random. I mean sometimes in doesn't detect any networks, but after a reboot it detects them all right.

    I don't know if it's from the update i'm talking about or else. But i haven't change any config files or something...

    lshw -C network returns the following:

    lshw -C network

    HTML Code:
    sudo iwlist scan
    i can see the list of available wireless networks in my area.
    so it seems that the networkManager applet is the problem...
