Bug Description

Ubuntu 9.10
I have a hp6735b laptop with wi-fi/bluetooth Broadcom BCM4322 module installed. The wireless kill switch can only turn wi-fi off, but not on, so I have to reboot every time I turn it off.
If the system boots with killswitch off, the wireless module is not listed in lspci and cant be turned on. Have to boot with wireless on already.
If I boot with killswitch on, the device works, but when I try to disable it, wi-fi is still listed as working, thow it actually stops and can`t be turned on again until reboot.
The bluetooth works fine, though controlled with the same button.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Please execute the following command, as it will automatically gather debugging information, in a terminal:

apport-collect 567827

This will help us to find and resolve the problem. Bear in mind that you may need to install the python-launchpadlib package from the universe repository. Additionally, when prompted to give apport-collect permissions for Launchpad you will need to give it at least the ability to "Change Non-Private" data as it will be adding information to your bug report. Thanks in advance!
