I have installed the 11.10 and everything went smoothly. The wifi card was automatically detected and connected to my wifi network, downloaded all the required files.
But after the restart, I can't use any wireless connections (only the cable), as it says that the device is not supported (or handled).
How can I fix this problem?

In the network manager I don't see any wireless networks and the Wireless network option is grayed out.
I have installed
wicd-daemon. It shows all the available wifi networks and the connection works fine.
But how can I make it to work with the Network Manager? It's tray notifications are pretty convenient.
