first of all, please list complete details just to be sure.

can you post the outcome of
lspci and
lshw -C network

as for the meantime, here are some reference: link 1 (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766529&highlight=wifi+hardy)

link 2 (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=512828&highlight=acer+aspire+3680) <---some said this still works even though it is on Feisty.

Note: link 1 uses MadWifi method. link 2 uses Ndiswrapper

I also think that the driver for my ATI X2300(branded X1300) is needed

It appears you are using the AMD-64 version of Hardy, given the wireless card's detection as AR242x...
The following worked for me on this card and Hardy AMD-64 (scroll down to the instructions for this, about half-way down the page), hope you find it helpful, too.

I just made a complete guide to install ar5007 support in 32 bit Hardy correctly with madwifi drivers step by step with links to everything required. It is 100% and will stop any later problems with conflicting restricted drivers as I remove them. If you have 32bit Hardy and a AR5007 Atheros wireless adapter then I would recommend reading my guide. I have seen other posts claiming the Atheros is junk blah blah , but in fact it is one of the best chipsets available for wireless scanning and cracking purposes when used with the madwifi airmon patched drivers ( it also works quite well for normal encrypted networking ). The people who make such claims are ignorant of how to fix their problem so they blame the equipment, instead of learning something and fixing their implementation of the equipment for proper usage. As long as you are willing to use 32bit Hardy ( And I don't see a performance difference in normal use and I tried both ) then my guide will get you going with the best drivers available for Atheros cards.

Here is the link to my guide

I hope this guide helps all fellow AR5007 users out.
