I've got the same problem. Acer AS1430z, fresh 11.04 install, no wireless. Just bought it yesterday. On Win7-64 the wireless is listed as Atheros AR5B97. Ubuntu
sudo lshw -C network" recognizes it as Atheros AR8151, and then states: *-network DISABLED

I've read elsewhere here that this is a widespread problem and that "its being worked on". I hope so. I bought this laptop just to load up the new Ubuntu as my carry-around.
