Yesterday I changed from Jolicloudto Ubuntu 9.10.
After I booted up Ubuntu I discovered that the Wireless network connection was gone. I can connect to my wireless network through an external USB network card, but the internal one have stopped working.
Unfortunately I deleted Joliclloud so that I can not go back and see if it works there.
I have tried reseting (not reinstalling) BIOS and reinstalling Ubuntu.
The computer wich I am having this problem on is the Acer A One D250

Acer likes to use broadcom wireless cards. Ubuntu doesn't come with support for Broadcom cards out of the box. There is a restricted driver manager in the system administration.
