Bug Description

System = IBM Thinkpad G40, wireless network card = Linksys WPC300N V1 (PCMCIA)

Wiped and installed brand-new 8.10 intrepid on this laptop, everything worked great first time without issue, recognized and able to use wireless network card out of the box with no problems.

Did upgrade to 9.04 jaunty yesterday, now my wireless card doesn't even get power.

ProblemType: Bug
Architecture: i386
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 9.04
ExecutablePath: /usr/bin/yelp
Package: yelp 2.25.1-0ubuntu5
ProcEnviron:
 LANG=en_US.UTF-8
 SHELL=/bin/bash
SourcePackage: yelp
Uname: Linux 2.6.28-11-generic i686

******************
UPDATE: AFTER reading the following link:
http://tenthblog.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-how-to-enable-your-wireless-card-dell-broadcom-bcm4311/
I went to System->Administration->Hardware Drivers, and manually Deactivated and then Activated the Broadcom STA wireless driver.

Wireless card started working again, and I now have wireless network connectivity.

HOWEVER, an attempt to suspend the system caused the original problem to come back, and Deactivating/re-Activating the driver did NOT fix it.

After a reboot, I did NOT have to Deactivate/re-Activate, after system restart network card was working OK.

But after any attempt to Suspend, the Suspend fails (I think this is a known issue), and the card is deactivated, but even an attempt to Deactivate/re-Activate fails to bring card back online. Only after a reboot does it come back.

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in
it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try
with the latest Karmic 9.10 release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are
available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ .

If the issue remains, could you run the following command from a
Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal) while running Karmic. It
will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this
report.

apport-collect -p linux 367449

Who knows, maybe it was peculiar to me, but it went away and hasn't bothered
me since, if I'm the only one reporting it then let's close it.
