Hello, I just got a new Acer aspire 6930 with a Intel Wifi link 5100 (A/b/g/Draft-n) and have a Wireless G router, and have a mac upstairs connected to the wireless router (it works!) But, the laptop cannot (ubuntu 8.10 did not work, so i have 8.04) I followed this tutorial (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=879134&highlight=acer&page=2) on setting up the driver, it worked after restart, and broadcasting the SSID , then it worked, then i restarted, same again, after a little more tweaking this time, and then the next time, it did not work.
any help would be apreciated
thanks
