    Acer Aspire One wireless disabled Ubuntu 8.10


    I have an Aspire One and I replaced linpus with ubuntu 8.10, I am having trouble with the wireless network adaptor. I am getting very close, I think all I have to do is find a way to enable it.

    I am also concerned that I have more than one driver installed.

    The code below is my last session in terminal.

    Thanks you in advance for your help.
