PROBLEM SOLVED: wireless access difficulty

Getting my new eMachines laptop (Ubuntu 8.10) online WIRELESSLY was solved by Gordon Haverland http://www.materialisations.com/. He happens to be in my city and he was kind enough to come over. I used the notes generously provided by Nikolas at
and which ibutho kindly pointed me to with his post at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6380416#post6380416.
This alone did not fix the problem but Gordon finished the job for me.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH to all those many good people who helped me with this. I HOPE that the next version of Ubuntu will make all this difficulty a "thing of the past."

I'm putting all my notes here for the benefit of family who may want to move to Linux as well:
