I have just bought an Acer Aspire 8920G laptop. I have just installed Gutsy on it but am having problems getting the ethernet card to work.
The wireless card seems to work but not the wired ethernet one. Can anyone help ? The lspci show at the bottem seems to say unregonised device.

Ubuntu say it is: Attansic Technology Corp card ?
Windows vista were it is working say it is: Atheros card ?


This is the output from cat /etc/lsb-release

DISTRIB_CODENAME=gutsy
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 7.10"

This is the output from uname -a

pdelahun, now you have any problems with the Acer Aspire 8920G and Ubutnu 8.04?
You have worked sensory buttons? And normally play all speakers?
