I have recently updated my Ubuntu operating system to Ubuntu 9.1. All previous settings have been carried forward except for my wireless connection. As far as I can see the wireless connection should restore automatically but when I am asked for my password the program freezes. Can anyone advise me what to do to restore the wireless connection?

What kind of wireless card is it? (Broadcom cards have issues. You can hack a workaround by using ndiswrapper which often times will band-aid-fix an issue.)
Is the wireless card internal, USB, or PCMCIA based?
Did you check dmesg to see if the card was loaded?
(For example: dmesg | grep wifi0
What does ipconfig -a show?
I highly recommend the Atheros cards.
