I had the same with my laptop. It turned out that the switch on the 
laptop that turned wireless on and of, which did not work with 9.10 worked 
in 10.04 and was switched off. When I switched it on all was ok.

If this is not the case with you, you will have to provide much more 
information before anyone can help you debug this. For instance: what do 
ifconfig and iwconfig tell you? Is there anything in one or more of your 
logfiles (in /var/log) regarding your wireless network? That might be a 
good start, for me most of the time enough to debug it myself. But you 
could also look what lsusb or lspci tell you about your wireless adapter 
and feed it to google in combination with Ubuntu.

If you can't find a solution that way, giving us the above information on 
this list might enable someone to help you.
