blacklist acer_wmi)
I didn't manage to compile the driver but that's ok. I just did these two steps above and it worked
FYI, I'm using Xubuntu 12.10 on my Lenovo Z575.

My problem was not that wireless did not worked. It worked ok but the speed was 10x lower compared to Windows or to when I was using a wired connection.
