Same problem here.
Same problem here.
Exact same problem.
In many of these cases, it may be a simple matter of installing the proprietary drivers in Administration -> Hardware drivers... should take three minutes...
Hope that helps.
using 'ifconfg'or 'iwconfig' find the name of wi-fi...
e.g., mine is 'eth1'
sudo ifconfig eth1 up
execute the above command in 'terminal'.. this solved my 'device not ready problem'..
Is it useful?

Same problem. Dell inspiron. Intel wimax card.
I think it's the drivers.
For the Broadcom BCM4318 chipset for the first post, and probably most of the others in this thread (if broadcom wireless), see this page
Particularly the 'Installing BCM43xx drivers' section halfway down.
I had a similar problem on my mac mini. After tailing /var/log/syslog I discovered this
ctrl_iface exists and seems to be in use - cannot override it
Oct 1 14:45:14 geviousMini wpa_supplicant: Delete '/var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0' manually if it is not used anymore
Oct 1 14:45:14 geviousMini wpa_supplicant: Failed to initialize control interface '/var/run/wpa_supplicant'.#012You may have another wpa_supplicant process already running or the file was#012left by an unclean termination of wpa_supplicant in which case you will need#012to manually remove this file before starting wpa_supplicant again.
after removing /var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0 and restarting my wireless card worked.
Same problem here!
been at it for hours, tried every procedure on the forum
now getting "device not ready"
seriously considering ditching 11.10 and going back to 10.04....never been so difficult. At least before when the kernel updated every time, one could just recompile . not this time it seems.....
someone please help!
I got a Ralink RT5390 wireless on HP G62 laptop...
(wish there were smilies for tearing hair out)
