    Hi Mitch these are the two devices that weren't detected;

    >lspci
    01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications AR8131 Gigabit Ethernet (rev c0)
    02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation WiFi Link 1000 Series
    The laptop is the Acer1410 ('olympic') netbook as well.

    I don't know if the following will help, but people usually ask for this info...

    > sudo lshw -C network
    *-network DISABLED

    Thanks for any help you can provide. This notebook's like a year old and the network card worked fine under Wubi so it should work, but doesn't.

    Update: I tried the 'acpi=off' suggestion in grub, no change.

    Interesting... I have the exact same ethernet controller and it's all working for me in Lynx without driver-compiling fun... I can't comment on the wifi chipset...

    Do you think it might have something to do with Studio and their special 2.6.32-21-preempt x86_64 kernel?

    But that should be the same as the standard fork kernel except for the audio interrupts, right? (I don't really understand the architecture yet, so I'm working off of instinct.) =/

    Too bad really, this is like the perfect little Ubuntu netbook. Hopefully it can get sorted out.

    Oh man, that sounds like fun! I'm afraid I honestly have no idea, but my instincts agree with yours. It would be interesting to see what kernel configuration messed with the ethernet driver...

    I found something on this old thread about an HP card notebook problem that helped...

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...9&postcount=12

    You plug in your ethernet and type

    sudo dhclient eth0
    Then you

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install wicd
    The mysterious incantations worked. Wicd doesn't look like the standard Lynx network manager, it seems to be some older Python app but it works and I'm on wired eth0. It detects wireless networks too, though my corporate network is password protected and I haven't gotten on there yet. Looking good though.
