Hard to cut/past running in a term with no GUI and not many tools working, so I installed the desktop version 10.10 amd 64. It picked up the network card and the wifi. I followed a how to and set up open ssh from a term. Rebooted and ssh in with putty. Installed samba, Apache, MySQL and P2P for luck. All inside an hour. I have an open Firefox window with the samba system and all seems to work. I now have a system with all the desktop extras that I was trying to avoid but it seems with my chosen hard wear and current skill level it may be the best for now. I hope the next version of ubuntu server x86-64 will have the driver sorted. below is the output of sudo lshw -c network for the 10.10 desktop version just for a comparison.
Thanks for the help
