I have installed ubuntu 10.10 on my Gateway SX2840-01 with a Intel Wireless 4965AGN installed onto the motherboard. All is working well besides the wireless connection. It scans and shows listed networks, however, it will not connect to anything. No secure or non-secure networks.

below I am listing some results that might help to identify the problem.
