I have the same problem with my Gateway laptop.  Fortunately its a dual boot
so if I must have sound I can crossover to windoze.  My wireless worked at
first, but at some point during the updates it no longer works and I can't
even find how to set the parameters for the wireless.  This has been an
ongoing issue with Ubuntu and wireless for me.  Again, if I need wireless I
just go over to the darkside.

I just submit a bug report and hope one of these updates will fix it.  I
don't have time to waste trying to fix something that is over my pay grade.
Also, not worth the stress.
