Latest Kernel update?

After the latest update I have a new boot option and no wireless.
When I boot to the original kernel everything is fine. The kernel update was 8/1/09, I am scared to update anything, it took me a while to get my wireless working on the original installation. My wired network works in both versions. I compared both configurations and the only difference I notice is under system network it shows both wireless and etho, but under network settings under wireless it shows nothing. Can I uninstall the latest upgrade? Any suggestions would really help.

PS I could boot to the original installation but I am the kind of person that has to figure things out or I can,t sleep. (Stupid I know)
Thanks DC

If you built the wireless driver against the kernel(fairly common), you will have to rebuild the driver every time you change kernels.

Whenever you post a question it will be a LOT easier for us to help you if you tell us the distro, arch, and version you are running. Also where hardware is involved tell us what that hardware is (specifically).
