Hi,
I am using Ubuntu 8.04 on an Acer Travelmate 5720. I am having difficulty connecting to my wireless network with ubuntu, but on the same laptop I can connect using windows. I believe the card to be working, at least to a point because it appears to be able to communicate with the router. I think this because of the following messages in my system debug log:


Apr 27 20:07:36 stephen-laptop NetworkManager: <debug> [1209323256.665655] nm_device_802_11_wireless_get_activation_ap(): Forcing AP 'BTVOYAGER2091-34'

Has anyone seen this before that might be able to help me?
Thanks,

I have an Acer Aspire 5720z (5720-4126) With Atheros 5700EG Wireless card.

On the restricted drivers it shows, also shows under LSPCI, but under nm-applet, or under iwconfig it doesnt show. Any ideas to get this working???

After some more googling I found it to be a bug (I can't actually find the link now) with the driver for the wireless card in my laptop. I have installed 7.10 and it connects fine without any work at all so I guess I'll have to wait for this to be fixed before I can upgrade. Or I could try fix it myself....hmmmmmm

Install 8.04 with confidence.
I installed madwifi drivers version: "madwifi-nr-r3366+ar5007"
i found this driver, did the make, make install.... and it went well

You will need the build-essencial package.
