Hi All,
I have managed to make my atheros wireless card work using madwifi driver on 8.10.
My question is I am now being prompted to update the system, is there a possibility that after the upgrade the wireless will stop working (there are number of kernel updates available)

any advice will be appreciated
Regards

Well, you could try it, update and see what happens, in the worst case you would lose wireless. However the old kernel would still remain bootable via GRUB (pressing esc when grub starts loading brings up the bootloader). Its up to you really, even if it goes badly youll still be able to get online using the old Kernel. :)
