I am getting swamped in Thinkpads but the only one that's any good has got to go back :-(

Intel Wireless broken on Ubuntu 9.04

2009-12-21: Update - Working just fine with Ubuntu 9.10 !!

After using the Auto Update on Ubuntu 9.04 recently, the Intel wireless in my laptop stopped working. More exactly, it would associate to the same-old AP configured in the Network Connections applet, but after 20-30 seconds trying to authenticate it would fail.

The output of sudo dmesg would be along these lines:

[ 1494.509061] wlan0: authenticate with AP 00:1d:68:0a:fb:11
[ 1494.511257] wlan0: authenticated
[ 1494.511264] wlan0: associate with AP 00:1d:68:0a:fb:11
