    No Wireless on Ubuntu 11.10

    I have an ASUS U56E laptop with an Intel Centrino Wireless-n 6150 chip.

    Ever since I updated to Ubuntu 11.10, I have been unable to connect to any wireless network. In the network manager tab, I see all of the wireless networks nearby, but whenever I try to connect to one, it appears to keep loading without ever connecting. Password-protected networks ask for the password every 30 seconds without connecting.
    Wired connections work fine.

    The output of iwconfig is:
    Code:
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:"Wireless network to which I am trying to connect"  
              Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.462 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated   
              Tx-Power=off   
              Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Power Management:on
    I was previously able to avoid this problem by booting the 2.6.38 Linux kernel instead of the latest kernel (indicating it is a problem with the kernel?) However, with new updates, the old kernel fails to load Unity and thus is unusable.

    How can this problem be resolved? Thanks.

    This thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1862484&page=8 seems to have a solution to the problem.

    In the course of trying the above solution I've managed to kill my wlan0 so I don't if this works or not. So this probably isn't the most helpful.
