You may also want to run:

gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub

and change:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

to:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash ipv6.disable=1"

Save the new file, close gedit and run:

sudo update-grub

Reboot to apply, gets rid of the:
[ 4839.680064] eth0: no IPv6 routers present

nonsense.

I am pretty sure now that your wireless adapter was experiencing the following Broadcom driver bug in Ubuntu 11.04:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bcmwl/+bug/732677

As I understand it, there are 2 possible solutions for the BCM4311 wireless problem in Ubuntu 11.04:

1) installing b43-fwcutter and firmware-b43-installer as described here:

https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-nettool/+question/157369

or

2) manually installing bcmwl-kernel-source (5.60.48.36+bdcom-0ubuntu5) from maverick (Ubuntu 10.10) using gdebi

Solution 2 is described here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bcmwl/+bug/732677/comments/23

Can you help with this problem?
