    I bought this laptop second hand. I haven't installed or changed anything other than installing Ubuntu Studio.
    At setup, there were only two options in networking. etho1, which I figured was RJ45 and the wlan0-wireless. I selected wireless as default.

    ~$ cat /etc/modules

    Let's dig a bit deeper before we take further steps:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e b43 -e ssb
    lspci -nn | grep 0200
    Thanks.

    Nothing startling there; let's assume it is an anomaly for now. Your readings look pretty solid. Now let us see:
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    dmesg | grep wlan
    Thanks.

    Looks to me like you are or at least were connected. With the ethernet cable detached, what happens or doesn't happen as expected?

    This is a fresh install done today. I installed with no ethernet cable attached.
    When Ubuntu boots, it hangs waiting on network, then waits another up to 60 secs.
    Then once running, wireless doesn't auto start and when I added wireless in network connections it still doesn't connect and is showing last used, never.
    So when i connect ethernet cable it almost instantly connects and that's how I'm online now. If/when I remove ethernet cable I lose connection and wireless doesn't start. Even when I restart machine.
    Bottom line is, no wireless. But ethernet to same router works fine.
    I have no security enabled at router side.
    If I boot into Windows 7, same machine, wireless works fine.

    Please reboot with the ethernet detached so we have a clean slate and can see the behavior. Open a terminal and run:
    Code:
    dmesg > phantom.txt
    Find the file phantom.txt in yor user directory and paste it here and give us the link in your reply. We'll try to see what's going wrong.

    I will be off for the evening, so I'll check in tomorrow.

    Ok, will do. Just to update, I checked router local network and I do see where my wireless card's MAC did obtain an IP. But either way, programs such as skype and firefox are not working. I will continue to try and locate the problem. Thanks for your help so far.

    So, did you? What is the link?
