wireless broken after upgrade to 11.04 Natty

Asked by Rick on 2011-04-30

After upgrading my laptop from 10.10 to 11.04 I can no longer connect to my home wi-fi. It was working flawlessly for months before the upgrade. The network manager just keeps spinning and nothing happens.

dmesg output just keeps showing this over & over again:
