I'm running 11.10 on a Dell Inspiron N4010 (14R) and can't get my wireless settings to stick after a reboot. As the title states, the first thing I do when using a fresh install is to get synaptic running and install b43-fwcutter and firmware-b43-installer. So, upon rebooting, I am forced to use the wired connection which, strangely, will then detect my wireless network, and I can unplug the cable and use wireless until the next reboot. Btw- wireless works fine when booting from a live-usb.
The following is the output from
sudo lshw -c network:

Thanks in advance for any advice you all might have!
