As you mention, you say you are connecting to the broadband from the
Xubuntu machine with a WiFi adapter, when you use a cable it works,
with the WiFi adapter it doesn't.

The assumption I am making is that it could be something to do with
the wireless adapter (USB dongle or PCI card or integrated unit). It
may well be installed fine in Windows X & Ubuntu, but not on Xubuntu.
