    Well you've got a Broadcom 4318 wireless chip in that. Unfortunately, that is one of the more troublesome Broadcoms from what I've read here.

    Could you post the responses from the following terminal commands here too?

    Code:
    lsmod
    
    ifconfig
    
    iwconfig
    
    uname -a
    That "lsmod" tells what modules are currently loaded in your unbuntu- that is probably where the biggest/first problems will be found.

    If you do a forum search here for "broadcom b43" and "fwcutter" you will probably find some relevant threads here.

    Here is an older thread about the 4318 and using "ndiswrapper" to "wrap" some Windows drivers- you might need to resort to that with the 4318 from what I've read about its reputation:

    Broadcom 4318 Using NdisWrapper
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...=broadcom+4318

    Here another thread about the 4318 specifically:

    BCM 4318 with Jaunty

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...=broadcom+4318

    I'm not sure whether the proprietary "STA" drivers work with that one or not though (they work pretty well with my Broadcom 4321AG wireless, albeit slowly lately). You might search for "broadcom STA" here- (I have seen a lot of threads about trouble with the Broadcom 4312 cards lately for some reason *cough*update*cough*).

    edit: here are more threads about that 4318 and the Broadcom family:
