    your wireless chip is

    RaLink RT3090 Wireless 802.11n
    A newer release of Ubuntu like 12.04 (xubuntu, Lubuntu,) or any linux distro with a newer kernel than

    2.6.31-14-generic
    would fix your wireless issue. But. In case you want to get it working in Ubuntu 9.10.

    Thanks loads!!

    Sorry to digress, but do you think it would be wise to install ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop? it has 1 GB RAM and a dual core processor...

    If me. I would go with Xubuntu instead of Ubuntu.

    Minimum system requirements

    To install or try Xubuntu within the Desktop/Live CD, you need 256 MB of memory. Installing with the Alternative CD requires only 64 MB. Once installed, it is strongly recommended to have at least 512 MB of memory, but you can run with 256 MB too.


    which I think is easier to use for new Ubuntu users than the Unity Ubuntu 12.04 which has bigger system requirements IMO.

    DistroWatch.com: Xubuntu

    Some other members here may also mention Lubuntu 12.04. I run LXDE in AntiX on a core install. From personal experience I find LXDE fast and responsive. But not as full featured or easy to set up for a new Linux user to handle. You can give it go also though and decide for yourself.

    DistroWatch.com: Lubuntu

    Just another Linux Distro I like to recommend that will support your wireless card but is based on Debian that should run OK on your Laptop.

    DistroWatch.com: SolusOS


    Any distro I recommend can be run as a live usb first so you can get a feel for them first before installing them. All should support your wireless chip out of the box because they come with a newer 3x kernel instead of a 2x kernel.

    Edit: I'm reading this also. You might be interested in it also.
