    Cool Acer 4820TG with ubuntu 10.04

    Hi. I'm new to linux and would like to ask how do i get my wifi card working on ubuntu 10.04(64-bit).
    Below are my specs of my laptop (4820TG)

    Ethernet and keyboard(keyboard unusable at login page) is not working as well. Only bluetooth works out of the box.

    Would greatly appreciate help by the community



    Specs:

    Intel Core i7-620M processor
    (2.66GHz, 1066MHz FSB 4MB L3 Cache)

    Intel HM55 Express Chipset
    Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 a/g/n
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
    4GB DDR3 RAM
    640GB HDD

    installed the acerhk-source as u said but im still unable to get my wifi working.
    ethernet is now working after i installed the linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32.21-generic though.
