I just installed ubuntu 11.1 (clean install) and my wireless card is not working properly. it is an Intel AGN 4965, in a T61 thinkpad. It might work a couple minutes then drop. generally it does not get on the net, and if it does, it is only there for a minute or two. I have tried many solutions from many different posts and I just cant get it to work. Anyone have an idea? what info can I give you?
Any help would be appreciated. I am pulling out my hair after 6 hours of trying to get it to work!
Thank you!

http://www.bigfatostrich.com/2011/10/solved-ubuntu-11-10-wireless-issues/

also have read that if you wireless card is proprietary and not open source you just have to get a new card
know that is probably not the solution you want to here
good luck keep us posted
