Yep, that's the driver that 'breaks' my adapter. The one that works is the previous one, perhaps it was the BCM13 (really guessing as I forget and I don't have that machine here; but it is definitely the STA driver that kills me). I found a web link on how to remove the STA driver and install the old driver (and then make it permanent so the next upgrade doesn't wipe it out), but I just never got that to work. So once the various versions of Ubuntu started using the STA driver, I was done; I have to uninstall that version of Ubuntu and install an older version.
