I finally took the plunge and updated to ubuntu 9.10. Now my wireless doesn't work. I am using a dell inspiron 1545 with the broadcom sta driver. I also cannot get any of my other drivers working (ati video card driver).

Update: Ubuntu partition just got erased after some interesting package installation. Going to try and re-install

Installing the backports software source has solved the wifi issue for many people.

Have you followed the steps mentioned in Ubuntu HowTo?

Please provide more info on the Wireless - regarding chipset/model details.
