Since you can "use 11.04 and it boots very well" your 11.10 is corrupt or has files missing.
I think you try re-downloading 11.10.iso and burn it to the disk at the slowest possible speed and try again.

As for the Networking Issue with WIFI, start a new thread in "Networking and Wireless" Section. I am sure you will find a solution.

When I installed 11.10 I came to the black screen just like you. I hit ENTER after waiting a few min and the HD started back up,then I got the screen. I did another install a few months later with a newer CD and a fresh download and ran into the same problem again. Once again I repeated the same steps and carried on. I hope it works for you.
