    Wi-Fi no longer works

    So I installed Ubuntu 7.10 on my Mac Mini, and it was great. I played with it a little, but I had some work to do,so I still used OS X mostly.

    Now, I've finished the project I was working I, I went back to mainly using Ubuntu, about this was with 2 days until 8.04 dropped.

    When it did drop, I upgraded. Everything runs great, minus my Wi-Fi. Before this, Wi-Fi works out of the box.

    I'm a bit of Linux newb, so I'm not really sure what to do. I tired a few things, but nothing works. I had myself hooked up to my iBook, and I share that connection through ethernet, but thats not an ideal set up..

    Any ideas?

    With the Subversion one, it asks me {Y/n}, and no matter what I press, it Aborts.

    The other daily snapsnot one doesn't seem to do anything, that I can tell.

    For the last step, is that still just a copy paste, or do I need to do something else?(Its says edit /etc/default/acpi-suppor, does that just mean I'll be editing when I run that command?)

    Any idea?
