Wireless Worked on 3 Ubuntu Releases, Suddenly Dead, HW failure?

I'm not getting a response over on the Ubuntu WIreless Forum (which looks like it's getting slammed with questions), so thought I'd come over here. Could I trouble you good people to look at my post over there

and weigh in on whether or not you believe I have a hardware failure on my hands? As I state in the post, I ran fine from the original installed version, 8.10, through 2 upgrades (to 9.04 and 9.10). Now none of them work (When the problems began I re-installed each of them in turn in order to test).

Insights appreciated. Thank you.

I would conservatively estimate that your wireless card is defunct, especially since it no longer works in 8.10 or 9.04, it doesn't show up anywhere in the settings that you posted on the ubuntu forums.

Hopefully your machine still has a vendor's warranty.

---even though it's well past the warranty period, I now have an excuse to go buy a new machine, as this one was getting pretty long in the tooth.
