    Question Wireless Breaks after "Disabling it"

    Hello! I have recently broke my Ubuntu's entire wireless install by going to the performance options and clicking on "Disable Wireless".

    Good thing I have more than one laptop and a Windows partition on the other side of Ubuntu just in case.

    Anyways, I have just installed ndiswrapper to try and fix my blinking network light. It worked just fine. I could connect to any network just like before I installed the drivers and stuff. This was before I tried the "Disable Wireless" feature. Now my wireless is all messed up. I have a Acer Aspire 4720z with 12.04 Ubuntu installed. I have a Atheros AR5007EG.

    The drivers I downloaded: http://tinyurl.com/99n27xn

    Any solutions? I hate my Windows. I wanna be using Ubuntu. );
