I upgraded to 2.6.32-25-generic and have not been able to establish connection with the wi-fi modem/router. Went back to 2.6.32-24-generic and wireless connection established OK.

Are you using a third-party wireless driver or a driver provided by the hardware drivers applet?

Ok.

There is the hint:

Because the package not properly installed you should do it on right way.

Go to System
Go to Administration
Klick Synaptic Package Manager
Look for „2.6.32-25“ and choose Install the following packages:

linux-headers-2.6.32-25 (2.6.32-25.44 - new install, it was not installed
linux-headers-2.6.32-25-generic (2.6.32-25.44 - new install, it was not installed
linux-image-2.6.32-25-generic (2.6.32-25.44 - it was installed, then reinstall after it

After reboot both driver, the ATI and the Broadcom wifi will work again.

Good day: Kris

I had the same problem booting ubuntu 10.04 under 2.6.32-25

on the contrary, i have uninstalled linux-headers-2.6.32-25 in package manager. So, when i restart it boot with kernel 2.6.32-24, and wireless turns OK :P.
It makes me sense when I checked in www.kernel.org that the stable version of kernel 2.6.32 is 2.6.32-24.

@ krnkris

I am glad the you noted what you did. I reinstalled all three packages and everything came up okay.:guitar:

Hold that thought.... :confused:

On the next boot up- I had the same issue again. :-k So I went ahead and used patogon.cl's idea. :) I removed 2.6.32-25 and locked in 2.6.32-24. I will wait until 2.6.32-26 comes out and try again.):P
