Ubuntu wireless disables Windows wireless.

For about a week now I've been trying to get Ubuntu working with my netwrk connector... (BCM4312) and Just last night I did. At first everything was fine, it was working in Ubuntu and Windows...Now Windows is not sensing ANY networks...I'm hoping this isn't permenent, but 5 restarts later, it's not working... Plus the connection in Ubuntu is VERY shaky. at first it says 85%, then it goes to 25% and then disconnects...I haven't been able to use the internet on it yet...
