One of the problems is that each distro seems to have its own preference for 
dealing with wireless networking.  I don't know Ubuntu at all, but tools that 
I know for sure work well in a KDE environment are NetworkManager and wicd.  

I did have some problems when I tried to run with static IP, but now I use the 
router to reserve an IP for my laptop and use dhcp.  I have this laptop and a 
netbook both using wireless without problems.

New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature?  Add it to UserBase
