Can you go into the Terminal and post the results of lspci -nn? We need some information about the make and model of your wireless card.

Okay bro...go to this website and follow the instructions.

Atheros on Ubuntu 8.10 (Ultimate Edition 2.0) (http://unsharptech.com/2008/10/31/atheros-wireless-in-ubuntu-810-intrepid-ibex/)

My problem is that everytime I boot I have to do the same effin thing to get the wireless working. If anyone has a workaround, please share!
