I'm hoping I can get some straight help on this pain the butt chipset.
Acer Aspire 5315-2153 (walmart special)
Atheros AR5007EG wireless
wubi install of Hardy Heron 8.04 32bit

-Restricted hardware drivers show:
Atheros Hardware access layer (hal) enabled/in use
support for atheros 802.11 wireless lan cards. enabled/in use

network settings show:
Wired Connection (connected)
Point to point connection (dialup modem)
all options are greyed out

i've seen many different posts and tried many different things but can't seem to get the right combination to work once and for all. thanks in advance.
