Do you use Ubuntu 9.1.0 or 9.10?

Please do next:
disconnect ethernet and wireless, turn wireless off, then turn it on and in root console type:
Code:
dmesg | tail -n 50
Post please output to http://pastebin.com/, because it will be long.

Thanks

P.S.

Post as well output without ethernet for:
Code:
ifconfig -a
Thanks

Can you please check on your router, if dhcp enabled for wireless.
Because it is looks like your computer can get IP addresses from router through ethernet, but unable to do it through wireless.
Check it, please.
There should be something like DHCP server settings.

Thanks.
