can't get on-line after upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10


I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 9.4 to 9.10. Under 9.4, I had absolutely no problems connecting to our wireless network at home, and from there, going anywhere I liked. After the upgrade to 9.10, I can not go anywhere on-line, unless I first connect to my workplace VPN. Even then, getting to the sites I need to get to is not guaranteed. I constantly get an error message stating The server at www.<domain name> is taking too long to respond. I'm not exactly a Linux expert, so if anyone has a suggested solution, I'd be happy to try. I've made no changes to firewall or any other security measures.

What is your wireless hardware? Do 'lspci' in a terminal and find the entry for Wireless and post that. It is possible that you will need linux-backports-modules-wireless-karmic-generic.

Wireless hardware is a standard D-Link Wirless Networking card.

Here are the results of an 'lspci command':
