Hi, a few hours ago I installed Ubuntu 10.10 x86 on my Compaq Presario F700; is the first time that I install a linux-based operating system on that computer. Everything works perfect, exept the WiFi connection, the strange thing is that it actually works but the light that tells you if it's working or is not working is continually changing (blue, red, blue, red, blue, red, etc.) and when the light is red and I try to browse the web I can't do it.

I assume that is a driver problem, but I don't know how to solve it, Ubuntu doesn't show me proprietary drivers to install.

Oh, the wireless adapter is a "Atheros ar5006x", what can I do get it work properly?

Thanks!
