That is odd. Care to post the output of Code: lshw -C network from your working install, just to satisfy my curiosity about what's in there?...

    Is my machine maybe too old to run the newest kernel?

    No, older hardware by and large should run fine with a current kernel. It's rare for divers to be removed from the kernel unless it's truly obscure or obsolete hardware.

    It's curious that it's still not giving much info with lshw.

    Does
    Code:
    lspci -vnn
    show any more for the wireless?

    Just a regular every-day suggestion

    Find out the manufacturer of the network card and do a search engine search (google, bing, yahoo...) with keywords: [manufacturer] wlan driver ubuntu 10.10. I solve many issues for myself with such searches.

    Just to satisfy reed9 and my curiosity. Can you post the output of

    Code:
    su -c "hwinfo --wlan"
    and

    Code:
    su -c "hwinfo --netcard"
    on your 9.10 install. My readout for reference below

    Code:
    @biker:~$ su -c "hwinfo --netcard"
