I am unable to connect to my BSNL broadband (wireless) from ubuntu11.10 .It attempts to connect but then shows "wireless network disconnected" . Though it connects automatically when I plug in the jack in the wired mode. I can also connect to other wireless networks elsewhere...The wireless connection works fine when I use Windows 7. Please help.

Since BSNL is the state owned telecom provider in India, it provides both landline and mobile services. Usually BSNL broadband is associated with fixed-line services.

Its limited but I have a tutorial here

This may help for wireless connections
