I am having trouble connecting to my wireless network with 11.10. But when I boot up with my 10.04 live CD, everything works just fine.
Does anybody have a clue what the problem might be?
What follows is a rather long exposition explaining the things I've done so far:
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 from a CD 2 days ago. I entered the password for my network, and connected flawlessly. I then went through the process of upgrading to 11.10, one version at a time. My internet was still okay for the rest of the day.
Next day I boot up. I am prompted for my network password. I enter it, then wait. I'm prompted again, and again and again. After a while I decide to reboot with my 10.04 disc. I enter my password, everything is fine. I reboot to 11.10, and things are working again, no problems for the rest of the day.
Today, same story. I boot up 11.10, enter password, again, again, again. Try out a Kubuntu 11.10 disc, no dice. Then back to my 10.04 disc and I'm good. Now I try going back to 11.10, not working. Back to 10.04, working. Back to 11.10, not working. Back to 10.04, working. And that's where I am now, running 10.04 from a live CD.
In case you are wondering, yes I am absolutely certain that I am entering the correct password.

I assume the Network card is most relevant here:
01:09.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5008 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)
Here's my usb info, though I don't believe there's anything relevant there: http://www.pasteall.org/27578/text
The following is the results of dmesg with a filter of
